Foreign Investors

Ready to bring your ideas to fruition? Join Sturgeon County where we give you the space and support to make things happen.

Not only are we poised to take advantage of foreign direct investment (FDI) trends seen globally and across Canada but we share a border with 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, 2021).

Sturgeon County, recognized for its large and diverse agricultural sector, sees 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 (think trail rides, walks, snowshoeing, riding quads for miles), while taking full advantage of access to major local and global markets — say hello to your problem-solving ecosystem.

We are an economically diverse and entrepreneurial county that shows leadership in economic development and environmental stewardship while enjoying an excellent quality of life. We call that a win-win and we know you will too.

National and global companies are saying no to larger, more expensive gateway cities and yes to more cost-effective middle-market cities like Edmonton and surrounding municipalities like Sturgeon County.

We are here to support more capital, more jobs, and more innovation. International investors often require more detailed information, planning and analysis when choosing to go abroad. You’re looking for the best place to live and work; we can help. Come to Sturgeon Country for your transformation.

Our team is ready, willing and able to work with you to answer any questions you may have while providing custom site selection and investment solutions for your operation.
