The people who first settled in Northern Alberta possessed a pioneering and adventurous spirit, and not much has changed since then. With 60% of Alberta’s landmass and only 9% of the population, from the mountains to the prairie, there are untarnished wide open spaces, rivers and wilderness to take advantage of. Add to that, our long, hot summers and dry, sunny, winters- for the outdoor enthusiast, the possibilities for fun are endless!
We enjoy the benefits of affordable living, especially with no provincial sales tax! Our cost of living and recreational fees are often less than those in the rest of Alberta, while we have a higher percentage of the population earning more than $45,000 per year. This means you can earn more while spending less, and more money in your pocket is always a good thing! It is a rare opportunity to work and live in a region that is a resource rich economic powerhouse within Alberta and Canada, yet retains the untouched, natural beauty of our country.
If you are looking for smaller communities with people that pull together in good times and bad, look no further. We are proud of the home where we work hard and play even harder! Northern Alberta isn't for everyone, do you have what it takes?
