The Rocky View Advantage

In November 2023, Council approved a new 5-year Economic Development Strategy that sets a clear path toward continued business growth in existing sectors, while further investing in regional development, and leveraging strategic partnerships to advance economic growth.

Rocky View County is a thriving community for business and industry. The County surrounds the City of Calgary on the north, east and west sides with a unique profile of small urban centres, hamlets and rural communities, as well as being home to significant retail, transportation and logistic hubs and warehousing facilities.

The region represents a diverse economic environment to make, market and move goods and services. Active sectors in the County include:

  • agriculture
  • manufacturing and warehousing
  • transportation and logistics
  • film
  • television and creative industries
  • supply chain management
  • suburban offices and business campuses
  • conventional and unconventional energy

With a robust business community and many strategic advantages, it is easy to see why the perspective on Rocky View County shows a well-equipped location for all types of business ventures.
