where we are


The 1905 creation of the Provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan split the 2 year old town of Lloydminster in two. It would amalgamate in 1930 and now is the only city in Canada that has special bi-provincial status.

The TransCanada Yellowhead Highway #16 runs through Lloydminster, connecting our residents, businesses and visitors to the Atlantic and Pacific coasts by roadway.

Lloydminster is one of the truly unique communities in Canada. In fact, it is the only city that is in two provinces at once - Alberta and Saskatchewan! Our City is governed under special legislation to allow for this distinction. Canada’s Border City has been fortunate to share in two of Canada’s traditionally strongest economies. Being located this way does provide for additional business choice and the diversification of two geo-political systems. Lloydminster is also a very connected to high quality transportation systems. The TransCanada Yellowhead Highway connects us coast to coast while Highway 17 runs north/south through our city. The Lloydminster Airport has scheduled weekday service to Calgary airport and charters to everywhere else, while Greyhound and Saskatchewan Transit Company move people seven days per week. Pipelines move crude oil to market, including the Hardisty Terminal where the Keystone pipeline originates. CN Rail and CP Rail move product east, west and south to markets and ports.

Since its founding in 1913, Lakeland College has been educating our residents and impacting our community. In 2014 Lakeland’s 570 staff worked to educate over 7,800 students, resulting in an economic impact of $168 million.

As is the case in much of Alberta and Saskatchewan, the strongest sector in Lloydminster’s economy is energy. Our region’s participation in the sector is about 2.9 times more intensive than our two provinces combined and nearly 12 times that of Canada as a whole! Another sector that has emerged as a key employer and economic drive is retail trade. Our market size and location has resulted in significant retail development such that 14.8% of Lloydminster employment is retail based compared to just 11% in Alberta and Saskatchewan and 11.6% across Canada. On the flip side the public administration and arts, entertainment and recreation sector are the most underrepresented in Lloydminster, accounting for just 3.3% of all employment, or an industry intensity less than half of our two provinces and of Canada. The largest occupation type held by our residents is that of the trades and equipment operators. The strong oil, agriculture and construction activity has ensured a large base of trained trades and equipment operators. In fact this group accounts for 24.5% of our residents’ occupations, with sales and service roles next at 22.2% and management roles at 17.3%.
