Welcome to Red Deer County, Alberta

Red Deer County is located in Alberta, Canada. It is a fairly rural region with plenty of agricultural land, which makes it ideal for people who want to get away from city life. The county has a low population and spans more than 4,000 square miles, which leaves ample breathing room for people. This county isn’t completely isolated from urban land because the City of Red Deer is located at the North of the central boundary and has more than 88,000 people residing in it. 

All amenities are within convenient reach and people living here are pleased with the overall quality of their life. This is one of the reasons why the population of this agricultural community has been on a steady rise. Red Deer County has a thriving economy with a labor force of over 100,000 and participation rate of over 70%.

Unemployment is low at just 6% and the region has a very favourable tax rate compared to other locations in Canada. The agricultural settlement has been around for more than 120 years so Red Deer has a well-developed community. It is family-friendly and a great option for people who prefer a quieter life. 

The county experienced massive growth when oil and gas were discovered in Alberta, which led to steady industrialization and urbanization of certain areas here. Despite the rapid development and thriving economy, Red Deer County has an organic and comfortable environment that will suit people of all ages easily. If you want some fun and miss the city, it is easy to travel to nearby cities as the region is well connected.
