Alberta has earned a reputation of being a destination of choice for the world’s best entrepreneurs who embrace innovation and advanced technology to solve the world’s biggest challenges. There is a great deal of support and funding available through the local business community and Government programs for start-up innovation-driven businesses.


Alberta residents can achieve a very high quality of life:


  • Alberta has the second lowest cost of living and the most affordable housing market in North America.


  • Provincial health care insurance is available and free to all residents.

  • Albertans pay among the lowest provincial taxes and personal income taxes in Canada.

  • We are the only province without a sales tax.

It is a great place to live and raise a family. Albertans enjoy a lot of space to live with a big open sky and a lot of room to enjoy and explore the outdoors. Single family homes are attainable and abundant with lots of green spaces and parks for residents to enjoy.

Alberta is truly a beautiful place with a diverse landscape made up of wide-open prairies, the undulating grassy and forested terrain of the foothills that connect the prairies to the scenic Rocky Mountains:

  • Albertans enjoy the most days of sunlight annually than any other region in Canada.

  • The climate allows residents to enjoy four seasons of recreation including some of the Canada’s best hiking, golfing, skiing, fishing, cycling, skating and so much more.
