Sturgeon County is poised to take advantage of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) trends seen globally and across Canada. The County is located along the northern border of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region. Home to one of the fastest growing populations in Canada, the Edmonton region is the dominant hub for northern Alberta and is the fifth largest census metropolitan area in Canada (Statistics Canada, 2017).  

Sturgeon County has long been recognized for its large and diverse agricultural sector and is also seeing extensive growth in areas such as advanced manufacturing, petrochemicals, transportation and logistics. Our residents and businesses enjoy all the benefits that rural life has to offer, while taking full advantage of access to major local and global markets. We are an economically diverse and entrepreneurial County that shows leadership in economic development and environmental stewardship while enjoying an excellent quality of life.

As foreign companies look past larger, more expensive gateway cities to more cost-effective locations, middle-market cities like Edmonton, and surrounding municipalities like Sturgeon County, are stepping up to bring more capital, jobs, and innovation to the economy. International investors often require more detailed information, planning and analysis when choosing to go abroad.
