Town of Edson






Our Story

The Town of Edson is a tight-knit community located in the heart of Alberta’s rolling woodlands. With just under 9,000 residents, we are a town focused on celebrating the local, proud of our pioneering history, supportive of our neighbours, and invested in the vibrancy of our local economy. There are a number of reasons to choose Edson when looking to relocate or set up a new business. Here's to name a few: (1) we are strategically located midway between Jasper and Edmonton on the very busy TransCanada Yellowhead Highway; (2) have a growing retail and commercial sector that offers a variety of professional and customer oriented services, (3) we have top-rated schools and top class protective and emergency services, including a hospital and a wide range of professional medical services; and (4) we are close to several tourism, arts and cultural attractions such as the Red Brick Arts Centre and Museum, the Galloway Station Museum, the Cardinal Divide, Cadomin Caves, Emerson Lake and the Hoodoos, Silver Summit Ski Hill, and Hornbeck Cross Country Ski Trails.
