The population of the Town of Okotoks according to its 2015 municipal census is 28,016 up 2.5% change from 2014. The town's name is derived from "ohkotok", the Blackfoot First Nation word for "rock". That is the Big Rock, which is the largest glacial erratic in the Foothills Erratics Train, located about 7 km West of the town.

Okotoks has a lot of history, the journeying First Nations used the rock as a marker to find the river crossing situated at Okotoks and these tribes often followed large buffalo herds. Soon trading posts appeared, including one established in 1874 at the Sheep River crossing on the current Okotoks townsite. This crossing was on a trade route called the Macleod Trail, which led from Fort Benton, Montana to Calgary. The first settlers arrived in 1882 but earlier in 1879 the area saw the killing of the last buffalo.

By 1897 the community name had changed three times: from Sheep Creek to Dewdney and then Okotoks, assigned by the Canadian Pacific Railway. The rail line is still a main line south to the U.S. border, but the last of the passenger service ended in 1971.
