The perfect location well worth exploring
Conveniently situated on the Calgary-Edmonton Corridor, Innisfail is a thriving mid-sized community in what some may call the perfect location. It’s just 15 minutes south of Red Deer and an hour north of Calgary, meaning whatever few amenities it doesn’t have are available just a short drive in either direction.
What it does have, however, is impressive. And in this town of about 8,000, it’s all well worth exploring.
Innisfail businesses in recent years have been recognized as being among the fastest growing in the entire province. From their Innisfail base, entrepreneurs and business operators have played an important role in markets locally, regionally, nationally and globally.
Famed attractions such as the Discovery Wildlife Park and the 27-hole Innisfail Golf Club provide an immense draw for tourists and community members alike. And with a number of impressive recreational and cultural facilities, lifestyle opportunities truly abound.
With frontage along the Calgary-Edmonton Corridor, the town boasts exceptional highway visibility with easy access to markets. Regional and international airports are within an hour’s drive, while a recently announced transportation pilot will further enhance regional connectivity.
Innisfail Town Council in its 2018-2021 Strategic Plan identified the retention, expansion and attraction of business as one of its key priorities over the next several years. Plans in economic development are bolstered by aggressive targets in social, cultural and environmental realms.
The Central Alberta region fosters a strong rural work ethic that produces no shortage of skilled and dedicated workers. The presence of nearby post-secondary institutions also contributes to the immensely diverse talent pool from which the town draws its labour.
