Chipman is a village in central Alberta, Canada within Lamont County and Census Division No. 10.

Chipman was incorporated as a village on October 21, 1913. Prior to incorporation, Chipman was a hamlet under the jurisdiction of the Municipal District (M.D.) of Pines No. 516, which was known as Local Improvement District (L.I.D.) 27N4 prior to January 25, 1913.
L.I.D. 27N4 administered the Chipman-Mundare area upon its first meeting July 14, 1906 with Councillors Michael Eleniuk (chairman), J. Wilinski, P. Bahry, and H. Theis (secretary treasurer). Councillors were paid $2 per day and the secretary treasurer’s salary was originally $100. On January 25, 1913, the area became the M.D. of Pines No. 516 with Councillors A. Achtemychuk (chairman), E. Halberg, M. Kozak, W. Miskew, J. Jakubec and A. Lappenbush. M. Korczynski was secretary treasurer.
In March 1944, the M.D. of Pines No. 516 was united with the municipal districts of Wostok and Leslie to form the M.D. of Lamont No. 516. It was later renumbered as M.D. of Lamont No. 82 on April 1, 1945.
On January 1, 1968, the County of Lamont No. 30 was incorporated through the unification of the Lamont School Division No. 18 and the M.D. of Lamont No. 82. It was eventually renamed to Lamont County on January 1, 2000.
