Strathcona County

South Tour

We are unique in that we have one of the largest urban areas in Alberta that has grown from a bedroom community to a thriving economic centre. We have a large agricultural area that has small and large holdings, from hobby farms to major mixed operations. As well, through an innovative partnership with our neighbours, we have developed a major industrial area ready to respond to the needs of the petrochemical industry and beyond.

Delegate groups will tour the south one day and north the next day, or vice versa.

We are happy to be able to show you around, share our experiences and look forward to learning from yours. The future of our communities remains tied to the economic prosperity of the agricultural sector. I hope you enjoy your tour with us.
