DATA CENTRE


Camrose Region stands out as one of the rare Alberta communities not reliant on the oil and gas industry. Its diversified economy places a strong emphasis on agriculture, ensuring economic stability and an exceptional quality of life for its residents. Situated just 30 minutes southeast of Edmonton, the region encompasses 18 communities, with the City of Camrose serving as a key hub for services, shopping, and healthcare. With a population of 30,000 residents and continued growth, the region's affordability and high quality of life, featuring a vibrant arts scene, exceptional recreational opportunities, and notably low crime rates, draw in new residents each year. One of the county's key competitive advantages is the daily service of CP and CN railways, which form one of Alberta's rare railway junctions. The region boasts a robust agriculture industry as its primary employer, having experienced 15% employment growth over the last five years (2021 Census). Remarkably, for every agriculture-related employee typically found in Alberta, Camrose County boasts 8.5 individuals working in this sector. Other significant employers include manufacturing, construction, transportation, retail, and healthcare. Compared to the province, the Camrose Region has a higher proportion of the population holding high school, college, or apprenticeship diplomas, making it an excellent source of a skilled workforce, particularly in trades. The presence of the University of Alberta Augustana Campus in the city further enhances the region's workforce skill set.
