About the region

Country for establishing business operations1

Country for doing business2

Canada Canada continues to hold the top rankings among the world’s best destinations for investment and business climate metrics. Offering a 14.6 per cent average industrial cost advantage over the United States, Canada has the lowest cost structure among the G7 countries in all manufacturing industries studied by KPMG.

Within the province of Alberta, more than $224.3 billion in development projects are planned, underway or have recently been completed. Of this, the chemical and petrochemical sector accounts for $4.8 billion, $15.1 billion is allotted to the oil and gas sector and a staggering $97.5 billion is invested in the oil sands sector.

Alberta

Strathcona County

Alberta’s diverse economy provides broad-based opportunities that are crucial to sustain stable, long-term economic growth. Our province sits on the third-largest oil reserve in the world, a proven reserve of more than 166 billion barrels.

Positioned in the heart of Alberta’s midstream oil and gas industry, Strathcona County was originally founded as a supply hub for local refineries, and is home to 75 per cent of all refining in Western Canada. More than 98,000 residents are located throughout our urban centre of Sherwood Park and a large rural area of farms, acreages and eight smaller hamlets. Strathcona County is considered a specialized municipality within the Greater Edmonton Metropolitan Area, with a cumulative population of more than 1.4 million.

Corporations in Alberta enjoy one of the most competitive tax environments in North America: no provincial capital taxes, no payroll taxes, no sales tax and a publicly funded health-care system. The province’s 4.2 million people are the youngest of all Canadian provinces, with a median age of 36.3 years—plenty of time for your investment and the people of Alberta to grow and develop together.

KPMG’s guide to international business costs ranks the Greater Edmonton region’s (including Strathcona County) business operating costs as third lowest out of 27 Midwest United States and Western Canadian locations.

Market access Strathcona County’s industrial base has unfettered access to global markets, with ongoing infrastructure improvements to maximize efficiency, increase productivity and ensure new land owners can quickly start up their operations with minimal disruption or delay. Alberta’s renowned transportation network is at the centre of a direct and highly integrated service network to Northern and Western Canada, the United States and west coast ports serving Asia and the Pacific Rim.

Multiple railways serve industrial shippers in Strathcona County, providing access across North America and to major ports, including Vancouver, Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, New Orleans and Prince Rupert.

“Strathcona County is at the heart of

midstream oil and gas services and is where a lot of our expansion

Alberta’s 20,000 kilometres of paved highway and strategically located High Load Corridors facilitate connectivity and movement of modules and materials in all directions. There are three airports located within a 30-minute drive from any location in Strathcona County—including the Edmonton International Airport, which can accommodate the world’s largest cargo carrier and is Air China’s only cargo destination in Canada.

Liquids pipelines

Natural gas pipelines

Alberta’s liquids pipelines (400,000 kilometres) are used to transport crude oil or natural gas liquids from producing fields to refineries, where they are turned into gasoline, diesel and other petroleum products. Some liquids pipelines are also used to transport these finished petroleum products from refineries to terminals and distribution centres in or near large population centres.

Alberta’s natural gas pipelines (830,000 kilometres) are used to transport up to 17 Bcf/d (billion cubic feet per day) of natural gas from gas wells to processing plants and distribution systems throughout North America. Unlike refined petroleum products, natural gas is delivered directly to homes and businesses through an extensive network of small diameter distribution pipelines.

The Trans Mountain Pipeline, which stretches from Strathcona County to the Port of Vancouver for shipping, is currently being twinned. Once completed, this will triple capacity to 890,000 barrels of oil each day.

Rail and ports Alberta is directly linked to domestic, U.S. and Asian export markets by a 7,900 kilometre network of railway track. Our rail system is serviced by Canada’s two principal railroads, Canadian National (CN) and Canadian Pacific (CP), which both operate intermodal container yards in the region, as well as a number of strategically located short line railways.

CN maintains a cutting edge multi-commodity oil and gas distribution centre that is ideally situated next to CN’s Scotford Yard in the heart of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland. CN offers intermodal services from a northwest Edmonton site, while Canadian Pacific intermodal services are available in south Edmonton.

Currently, rail loading capacity in Western Canada is approximately 754,000 barrels per day1, with a large proportion of rail loading facilities located right here in Strathcona County.

Roads The trucking industry is well developed in Alberta and connected to major markets across North America. Our province is served by more than 20,000 trucking firms that move 60 per cent of all non-pipeline freight and about 90 per cent of all Alberta truck exports destined for the U.S.

Shipments from Strathcona County have easy access to all major highways, as well as the CN/CP intermodal rail sites. As part of the Edmonton region, we are the northernmost connection for the CANAMEX Highway, which serves the U.S. and Mexico, and a major centre on the Ports to Plains Corridor from the Port of Prince Rupert to markets in the U.S.

Alberta’s top-quality highway system can handle trucks up to 63,500 kilograms (140,000 pounds). These higher truck weights and dimensions result in the lowest possible unit costs. Industries in Alberta benefit from the lowest road fuel taxes and no provincial sales tax.

High load corridors Because of Strathcona County’s location, a specialty has developed around the need to move over-dimensional or overweight goods through a maintained network of high load corridors17. These high load corridors have accomodated some of the largest loads moved in Canada, and provide easy access to modular fabrication yards in the region.

Air cargo services are available from numerous airlines, couriers, cargo handlers, freight forwarders and customs brokers—including Air China Cargo, which runs a regular circuit between Shanghai, Edmonton and Dallas. EIA (YEG) is the largest major airport in Canada by landmass, allowing for runways that can accommodate any size of aircraft, with no restrictions on aircraft weight or passenger/load factors.

Air cargo

Regional airports

Strathcona County is served by an international airport and two regional airports, providing efficient air movement of goods on direct cargo flights and ease of passenger travel to destinations around the world.

There are two regional airports located within Strathcona County. Cooking Lake Airport19 is approved for international flights arriving directly from the United States, allowing private and corporate aircraft to clear customs under the CANPASS program. The Warren Thomas Josephburg Airport20 is also used for privately owned and commercial aircraft, with 28 bare land lease sites and 12 aircraft tie-downs.

The Edmonton International Airport (EIA)18 is a 30 minute drive from Strathcona County. It is a major hub for air cargo activity and Canada’s fifth busiest passenger airport. EIA offers some of Canada’s lowest aviation fees, warehousing, handling charges, fuel costs and trucking rates.

Zoning and permitting We are equipped to assist with the entire siting process of your project. If your desired site has Heavy Industrial classification within the AIHA industrial area, and meets your project requirements, then moving through the approval process is straightforward. Development boundaries of 1.5 to three kilometres exist around residential areas to provide reassurance for both companies and the community. Other sites may require rezoning or amendments to the Area Structure Plan and Municipal Development Plan. Development permitting process and timelines • The process for a new heavy industrial development permit begins with a pre-application meeting with the applicant and relevant County departments to discuss application requirements and obtain feedback prior to the submission of the application. • Preliminary plans and other information are required for the pre-application stage. This should be provided at least two weeks before the scheduled meeting date to allow time for review. • A $500 pre-application fee applies; however, this amount will be credited to the development permit fees if the permit application is received within six months of the pre-application meeting.

• Once the application has been submitted, it is circulated for review to internal departments and external agencies/stakeholders. • If the application is not supported by all departments in the first round of review, comments are provided to the applicant for response. • Once the applicant’s response and revised plans are received, they are circulated once again for review. • When all departments are willing to support the application, a development permit (conditional or otherwise) is issued. • Review timelines are very dependent on work volumes—approximately six weeks for the first set of comments, and shorter timelines for any subsequent review (approximately two to three weeks). The initial completeness of an application also expedites the process greatly. Fees and charges Development, building, gas and electrical permits will also be required to complete the process. 2018 fee schedules are available online21.

Taxes and levies Property taxes

GST does not apply to exports and is fully recoverable for businesses engaged in commercial activities. Alberta is the only province in Canada with no provincial sales tax (PST). Residents in other provinces pay up to 10 per cent. Further information regarding federal taxes is available at the Canada Revenue Agency.

In December 2017, Strathcona County Council approved a 2.18 per cent decrease on property taxes for 2018. This results in a tax rate for non-residential property of 12.8087 per cent and a machinery and equipment tax of 9.0971 per cent—well below the average municipal tax rate in Alberta.

Carbon levies

Corporate income taxes (Federal and Provincial)

In Alberta, a carbon levy of $30 per tonne is charged on all fuels that emit greenhouse gases. The rate is charged on the amount of carbon released when the fuel is combusted, not on the mass of fuel itself. This implies 2.68 ¢/L of diesel, 2.24 cents per litre of gasoline, 50.6 ¢/GJ of natural gas, and 1.54 ¢/L of propane. Canada’s federal carbon levy does not apply to provinces already charging a levy, such as Alberta.

Corporations operating in Alberta are typically taxed provincially at a rate of 12 per cent and federally at a rate of 15 per cent, for a combined tax rate of 27 per cent, which is very competitive among industrial nations and generally lower than combined federal/state tax rates in the United States. Personal income taxes

Over the next five years, revenue from the Climate Leadership Plan—including the carbon levy—is expected to raise $9.6 billion, all of which will be reinvested in the economy and rebated to Albertans. This includes $3.4 billion towards investments in largescale renewable energy, bioenergy and technology, and $865 million to pay for a cut in the small business tax rate from three per cent to two.

The Canadian federal tax rate ranges from 15 per cent to 33 per cent depending on personal income levels, and at a range of 10 per cent to 15 per cent, Albertans enjoy the lowest personal taxes in Canada. Sales taxes The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a 5 per cent tax that applies to most goods and services in Canada. The 19


You can receive support Incentives The Governments of both Canada and Alberta encourage business investment through grants and programs that support research and development, the hiring and training of workers, and key industry sectors. Staff members at Strathcona County’s Department of Economic Development and Tourism are trained to help businesses navigate the available incentives and connect potential applicants with grant administrators, in order to increase their likelihood of successful applications. Diversification The Petrochemicals Diversification Program (PDP)22 was created by the Government of Alberta to encourage companies to develop new petrochemical facilities in Alberta by providing incentives through royalty credits. The first round of this program awarded $500 million in combined royalty credits to Inter Pipeline and the Canada Kuwait Petrochemical Corporation. Inter Pipeline’s Heartland Petrochemical Complex is located in Strathcona County and will convert propane into polypropylene pellets for plastics manufacturing. The second round is open to applications from June 11 to October 21, 2018 and promises to award an additional $500 million to projects that will further expand Alberta’s value chain for propane, methane or ethane.

The Petrochemical Feedstock Infrastructure Program23 is a Government of Alberta initiative that encourages industry to build facilities that capture natural gas liquids such as ethane, methane and butane. Potential projects could include straddle plants, and a total of $300 million in grants and $200 million in loan guarantees are available for the program. The Partial Upgrading Program24 was developed by the Government of Alberta to encourage companies to develop facilities and technologies for partial upgrading of bitumen, which will enable more refineries to process Alberta bitumen. The program will contribute up to $1 billion amongst two to five new partial upgrading facilities. Research and development The Alberta Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) Tax Credit25 benefits businesses of all sizes and in all sectors. The credit is worth 10 per cent of a company’s eligible expenditures up to $4 million, for a maximum credit of $400,000. It will be refundable for all companies. The Alberta Investor Tax Credit (AITC)26 provides a 30 per cent tax credit to corporations/individuals who invest in businesses engaged in research, development or commercialization of new technology and other sectors.

Other grants and incentives

Alberta Innovates27 provides funding through a broad range of changing programs in four areas of focus: clean energy, health innovations, bio sector and crosssectoral investments. The Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP)28 helps companies bridge the pre-commercialization gap by procuring and testing late-stage innovative federal government goods and services (up to $500,000) before taking them to market. The Canada Scientific Research and Experimental Development Tax Incentive Program29 provide tax refunds or credits for expenses related to research and development. Hiring and training

Sustainable Development Technology Canada33 (provincial and federal joint program) provides funding for Canadian clean-tech projects and coaching. Opportunities include the SD Tech Fund for projects that address climate Canada offers an change, air quality, clean water and array of government clean soil.

incentive programs and services that can lower corporate taxes, help save on labour costs, R&D, and expansion activities.

Financial contributions toward employee salaries are available to hire workers from post-secondary institutions through a variety of programs (such as Youth Employment Program30, Industry R&D Associates31, Mitacs Elevate and Mitacs Accelerate32).

The Alberta Export Expansion Program34 provides funding to help export-ready Alberta companies access new international markets. The Alberta Jobs Plan35 supports investment to create jobs through a variety of credits and grants. The $75 million Capital Investment Tax Credit (CITC) provides a 10 per cent nonrefundable corporate tax credit of up to $5 million for costs including the purchase of machinery, equipment and buildings.

The Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation36 helps organizations cut costs, improve efficiency and reduce industrial greenhouse gases through cost-sharing assistance and more.

Construction and modules

Utilities

Because of the size of Alberta’s oil and gas sector, our province has also developed an advanced construction industry that includes globally competitive firms and specialized modular fabrication yards (MFY). The quality of mega projects constructed in Strathcona County and Alberta’s Industrial Heartland is internationally recognized, and guarantees a healthy long-term return on capital expenditure.

Electricity

Because of cold weather during the winter season, modular fabrication yards allow for the piecemeal construction of offsite facilities in controlled environments, which are then transported to the project sites for assembly. The significant cluster of MFYs in proximity to Strathcona County are supported by a developed network of high load corridors (HLCs) that allow for easy transport of oversized loads to your site in Strathcona County.

The connection process includes six stages and follows a gated approach, and takes approximately 96 weeks (nearly two years) to complete. The Integrated Project Manager role is either assumed by the client, the Transmission Facility Owner (TFO), the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) or a consultant.

The transmission system serving the Heartland has been expanded to include a new overhead double circuit 500 kV transmission line, ensuring plenty of capacity for future growth. This is regulated by the Alberta Electrical System Operator (AESO)38. This organization sets transmission rates as well as the costs associated with extending the system to new operations.

Electricity providers in Strathcona County include Fortis, ATCO and more.

Watch the business success story video featuring Shell at strathcona.ca/ youcanbusiness

Industry profile: Shell Scotford Shell completed construction of its major refinery and chemical plant (Shell Scotford) in Strathcona County in 1984. Today, the refinery has a daily capacity of 119,000 barrels of synthetic crude oil. However, the Scotford Refinery produces a wide variety of products, including gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, propane, butane and benzene. In the early 2000s, Shell added an on-site glycose plant and opened an upgrader, making Shell Scotford the first refinery to process bitumen from Alberta’s oil sands into different crude products. This was further expanded in 2011 because of significant demand, and it now has capacity to process diluted bitumen equivalent to 255,000 barrels of oil daily. Shell’s chemical plant produces styrene monomer (used to manufacture food containers, home insulation, safety helmets and car interiors) and ethylene glycol (used to manufacture plastic drinking bottles and antifreeze). Quest, Shell’s flagship carbon capture and storage (CSS) facility, was added in 2015. This world-renowned facility captures and permanently stores more than one million tonnes of CO2 emissions from Shell’s underground oil sands operations each year. Construction of the facility was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.

CSS is the only current technology available to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, and reduces the equivalent of 250,000 cars annually. Most recently, Shell completed a growth project at the Scotford Refinery that has further increased production by 20 per cent through debottlenecking of the hydrocracker. This will increase Shell’s ability to process crude oil and strengthen its refining capability in Strathcona County. The integrated facilities (upgrader, refinery, chemical plant, CSS) at Shell Scotford employ more than 1,100 people, and are an example of how successful integration in multiple levels of the value chain can produce a full range of products for both local and global markets at profitable margins. On March 9, 2017, Canadian Natural Resources Limited (CNRL) acquired Shell’s stake in their Athabasca Oil Sands Project, in situ operations, Scotford upgrader and Quest CSS project. Shell continues to operate both the Scotford upgrader and the Quest CSS project. The transaction does not include any interest in the 100 per cent Shell-owned Scotford refinery and chemical plants.
