Business in Edmonton and Economic Development
The city has a solid reputation as a great place to live, work, and invest so it’s no surprise the Edmonton-area population continues to outpace the national growth rate year after year. The Edmonton census metropolitan area (CMA) has a 2019 population estimated at 1.8 million, of which 70% live in the city proper, according to the UN World Urbanization Prospects.
In addition to having one of one of the friendliest business climates globally (Edmonton’s business community is represented by collaboration and support), it’s one of the most cost-competitive places to do business in the world. The city’s economy is characterized as strong and resilient and is respected for being one of the most diversified economies in Canada, and the world.
Edmonton Economic Development Corp. (EEDC) reports that when compared to other Canadian provinces, businesses in the Greater Edmonton Region benefit from an Alberta advantage when it comes to corporate income taxes. The particular benefits include: no provincial sales tax, no payroll tax, and no health care premiums. Moreover, Edmonton possesses some of the lowest tax rates in North America, for instance, personal income tax rates—as well as—having the lowest fuel tax in the country.
The March 2019 industrial development report from Colliers International shows tax savings, available land, and accessibility are spurring an industrial real estate boom on the edges of Edmonton, with the Leduc/Nisku area leading the push.
Further growth in Edmonton, according to the EEDC, includes a $5 billion transformation of active development and investment in downtown, made up of office towers, restaurants, hotels, retail spaces, arts and culture facilities and residences.
Enterprise Edmonton and Innovate Edmonton, two divisions of EEDC, cite the city’s six key sectors, which include:
Artificial Intelligence (Edmonton is designated as one of three Canadian hubs); Health & Life Sciences (Canada’s largest integrated health-care system); ICT Digital (software engineers and web developers are wanted by Edmonton’s top employers); Advanced Manufacturing (Edmonton has the second most skilled trades people in Canada (per population) and the most engineers in Canada (per population), making for the best labour force; Oil & Gas (Edmonton is a hub of opportunity and a strategic base for Canada’s energy industry); Food & Agri-Industrial (leading research, clean feedstock, high-calibre talent, and quality processors; also, the food and beverage industries are among the top employers in Edmonton).
The leading employers in Greater Edmonton come from a wide range of industries, with locations that are spread throughout the region.
Edmonton is an important city to conduct business thanks to its infrastructure, strong urban growth centres, increasingly diverse economy, growing population and lucrative investment opportunities. Edmonton contains the right opportunities, resources and financial capital to assist in your startup growth.
