About Camrose

The City of Camrose, located in the heart of Central Alberta with a population of approximately 20,000 people, is a unique city with a rich history and a modern vibrancy. Built upon Indigenous traditional hunting grounds and grown through a wave of Scandinavian immigration, Camrose became a confluence for railway goods and passenger transportation that still supports an extensive agriculture industry.  

With a trading area of 100,000, the City is experiencing an unprecedented economic boom as existing businesses expand and new businesses are jumping on economic opportunities. Camrose has cemented its position as a regional hub for commerce, recreation, health care, and education.

Camrose is a city alive with activity. The diverse and thriving arts and culture scene offers entertainment and creative opportunities all year round. Two live production theatres host unique performances, providing a stage for everyone from local artisans to professional touring companies.

The gorgeous Stoney Creek river valley that winds through the City is a nature reprieve and playground for year-round outdoor enthusiasts who hike, mountain bike, paddle on the lake, and cross-country ski. Competition-level recreational facilities host everything from local club practices and tournament play to world class, televised events.  

Between robust health care services and great schools, small town warmth and big city amenities, Camrose is an exceptional place to live and raise a family.
