Give the world
more Edmonton.

Edmonton is perfectly situated for success. We’re open for business, and we firmly believe the world wants what we're making.

the historic.

Edmonton loves sports and culture. Not only do Edmontonians come out by the thousands as spectators, they are passionate and experienced volunteers who will help deliver something unforgettable. We know what it takes to deliver the extraordinary.

Canada’s youngest
fastest growing city.

Edmonton is growing at a rate that’s twice as fast as the national average. Between now and 2020, the city will see $5.5 billion invested in development of residential towers and retail spaces, office towers, new hotels, educational institutions, arts and culture facilities and light rail transit. 

52 weeks of things to do.
We're not all business.

Ask any of our 1 million plus residents and we are confident they will agree.
