Low Cost of Living.
High Quality of Life.

Affordable residential housing options, little to no traffic snarls on our roadways, accessible urban services nearby, and peace and quiet where you can actually hear a cow moo, or listen to crickets! Typical for life in the country where one can hear the sounds of silence.
There is a quality of life in rural Alberta that is difficult to put into words, but is extraordinary to experience! Does dark skies, quiet surroundings and fresh air sound inviting? If so then consider the side benefits of low cost of living, low civic taxes on your residence, and the true sense of being a part of a community. Where neighbours are always welcome, and not obtrusive.
It’s true! The stress and pace of living here are different. Life becomes less complicated. Rush hour traffic translates into being the 2nd person at the yield sign. The hockey rink is a 5 minute drive into town for a 6:30 pm (not am!) practice. The problem of having to book a tee time is non-existent because the golf course is always open. Yes, rural life is full of challenges, but we are sure you will embrace the simplicity of country living.

Our Rural Competitive Advantage.

The County of Paintearth has a very competitive municipal tax rate – from residential to industrial developments and all classes in between. Also, low costs for utilities, land development and labour coupled with modern high technology services make us the perfect location for your venture.

In east central Alberta, specifically in the Paintearth region, you will find advantages not readily evident to the city dweller. A typical newer Calgary residence – of 1700 ft2 – may cost upwards of $700,000 + whereas out here that same residence may only be $400-450,000. (You could save a quarter million dollars!) Land costs outside the central Alberta “corridor” become more affordable to the point where our economic advantages really stand out, and people are starting to notice.

Our trades and skilled labour force in rural Alberta also provide for cost effective construction and project economics thus creating many advantages for locating to the Paintearth region. Our low industrial and commercial tax rates combined with the full utility services available to Crowfoot Crossing businesses – including fibre optic – keep this area very competitive for many industries.
