Wetaskiwin's history is rooted in agriculture. The creation of the Wetaskiwin Co-op in 1917 by a group of locals has ensured that there has been value added agriculture in the city for over a hundred years. Even though agriculture is one of our oldest industries, we are proud to say that it continues to be a key industry in our city today.
Our strategic location of being just off the QEII Highway (Edmonton-Calgary corridor) and the CANAMEX Trade Corridor means it's easy for products to get to market. Wetaskiwin has the benefit of being close to multiple modes of transportation, whether it's air, rail, or highway.
It's cheaper to do business in Wetaskiwin. If you're looking for a location to rent, we have low commercial lease pricing. If you're looking to build a location, our South East Industrial Park has full serviced land that's shovel ready with no off-site levies. It's hard to argue with that.
Wetaskiwin's value added agriculture began thanks to a strong entrepreneurial spirit that can still be found today. The City of Wetaskiwin works hard to ensure our entrepreneurs are supported and represented at various levels. The City of Wetaskiwin is already working for your business, why not find out for yourself?
