Oyen is a small town in eastern Alberta, close to the Saskatchewan boundary, north of Medicine Hat. The town is located on Highway 41, south of its junction with Highway 9, and is the first major centre within Alberta for travellers entering from nearby Saskatchewan.

Oyen is the service centre for a large but sparsely populated dryland farming area. In the surrounding area wheat, barley, and canola are important crops, and beef cattle are raised.
