Rural Image

It’s easy to see what makes the community of Strathmore, Alberta so unique. Residents who move here leave behind the hustle and bustle to enjoy Strathmore’s relaxed and friendly atmosphere. From its century old agriculture heritage to its up and coming entrepreneurs and community visionaries, Strathmore is attracting families, small business owners and start ups from across the country who are relocating and in turn, reimagining what it means to be a rural community. Here are just a few of the things that make Strathmore a perfect fit for you and your business:

Land Availability and Housing:
Strathmore offers significant open space ripe for future development. With room to grow and a large stock of inventory for land and real estate development, Strathmore is home to a greater number of affordable housing and commercial options compared to larger municipalities.

Experienced Workforce:
Businesses can tap into a steadily increasing, highly skilled and educated workforce. Strathmore has a supportive population of almost 15,000 people and an immediate trading area of over 35,000. A mere 35-min commute from/to Calgary provides access to an additional market of over one million people in close proximity.

Prime Location:
Situated in one of Canada’s sunniest regions, Strathmore is located along the Trans-Canada Highway with quick access to other major transportation arteries, such as Highway 817, Highway 2, and Stoney Trail. The Calgary International Airport is a 35-minute drive away while the city centre is approximately the same driving time. Being next to big farming represents great opportunities to capitalize Agri-Business, the food and beverage industry, tourism products and services, as well as any value-added business catering to agriculture.

One of Canada’s Best Communities:
Strathmore ranked #51 on their 2021 list of the 415 Best Communities in Canada. The Maclean’s list uses data provided by Environics Analytics and the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), as well as publicly available figures from a variety of sources to rank communities based on multiple categories including housing affordability, population growth, taxes, crime, weather, access to health care, amenities and community engagement.
