Alberta's Industrial Heartland

The geographic region of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland is 582 square kilometres (225 square miles) of industrial land in five different municipalities.

Alberta's Industrial Heartland is Canada's largest hydrocarbon processing region and one of the world's most attractive locations for petrochemical, chemical, oil, and gas investment. 

The Heartland is home to 40+ world class companies with a combined investment of over $25 billion. Just 50 kilometres (30 miles) northeast of Edmonton, the region’s leading natural gas liquid fractionation and salt cavern storage area has made it the location of choice for industrial facilities since 1958. Operations include fertilizer production, resource upgrading and refinement, petrochemical development, mineral processing, and more.



Alberta's Industrial Heartland Association (AIHA)

Planning and development in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland is guided by a partnership of five municipalities, including Sturgeon County, who each have land within the geographic boundaries. As a not-for-profit association, AIHA is governed by a Board of Directors, comprised of one representative of each of the municipal partners. The Board of Directors provides general direction and strategic priorities for AIHA Executive Director (Neil Shelly) and staff. The Board and AIHA staff work closely with numerous stakeholders including government, private industry, and area residents to ensure industrial development reflects the interests of the community, industry, and environment.
