The top 3 reasons to live and work in Alberta.

If you grew up in Alberta, it’s nice to know you can stay at home and have a world-class career. If you’re considering moving to Alberta, you can look forward to a rewarding lifestyle in Canada’s fastest-growing province. (STATSCAN)​

Here are three reasons why Alberta is a great place to live and work:

  1. Lowest overall taxes and highest disposable income in Canada. Known for its strong economy and high quality of life, Alberta has no provincial sales tax (PST) or harmonized sales tax (HST). This is in addition to having the lowest unemployment rate and the most educated work force in Canada. Talk about the optimal environment for your family and finances!
  2. Endless natural beauty. Alberta is bursting with natural beauty—22 million acres of protected parks, five UNESCO World Heritage Sites, endless golden fields, and an awe-inspiring mountain range. Sure, Alberta can get cold in the winter, but the abundance of sunshine (the most in Canada!) makes it worth bundling up and heading outside. Each of the four distinct seasons provides new opportunities to explore Alberta’s outdoors.
  3. Urban cities and rural communities. Are you looking for a bustling city life, complete with fine dining, world-class arts, and national sporting events? Or is a quiet country life where you can be part of a close-knit community more to your taste? Alberta has it all. And everywhere you go, you’ll be welcomed with warm hospitality.

So what are you waiting for?
