Economic Development

The Town of Redwater is a vibrant, welcoming community, home to approximately 2,200 people and 120+ businesses. Residents enjoy the healthy, relaxed lifestyle of their picturesque rural surroundings with the added bonus of easy access to urban amenities.

Unique Location Brings Employment Opportunities

Located only 35 minutes from Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan we are minutes away from Alberta’s Industrial Heartland. Redwater brings easy access for industry employees, with its close proximity to major transportation routes (Highways 28 & 38 w/rail access), and direct access to Fort McMurray, Alberta. The volume of activity that we realize daily from the Oil & Gas sector is expansive.

Full Service Community

Redwater offers K-12 schools with Registered Apprenticeship Programs, quality emergency & medical services, RCMP detachment, a first class recreational and cultural facility, a 9-hole golf course, curling club, outdoor swimming pool, as well as numerous parks & sporting venues. Perfect for nature hikes and bird watching with over 100 km of trails for equestrian and recreational use.

Dedicated to Development

With growth comes the need for commercial retail development. Family restaurants, fast food chains, grocery stores, coffee shops and staple amenities would all realize great return on their investment in the short and long term. The municipality is dedicated to future development, offering a one year Property Tax Rebate, through our Municipal property Tax Rebate Bylaw FIN-03-2023  for new residential construction. Our municipal team will work with developers and investors alike to provide the most current, relevant & comprehensive information available.

Our region is a hub of activity generated by the presence of industry and commerce, predominantly through the growing oil and gas trade.  We welcome the opportunity to make our community your home!
