Message From the Mayor

The Town of Canmore is one of the most beautiful places in all of Canada to live work and play! Nestled in the stunning Rocky Mountains within minutes of a world heritage wilderness park, three provincial parks, five world-renowned ski resorts, six breathtaking golf courses, and an international airport, it has a myriad of opportunities to offer the adventurous entrepreneur.

We boast a young, energetic and well-educated population that values a vigorous, outdoor adventure lifestyle to recharge their entrepreneurial drive. This compelling combination has made Canmore one of the fastest-growing and most desirable communities in Canada.

Capitalizing on the opportunities presented by the 1988 Olympics, we have grown from a mining town with a once uncertain future, to an international tourist destination with a growing reputation.

Our community is keenly aware of the fine balance between economic growth and a healthy environment. It is for this reason that we seek the kind of business that can take advantage of our incredible location with minimal environmental impact. Our future lies in the intellectual wealth coming to the community from all over the world as well as strong opportunities in the areas of health & wellness. Opportunities that can sustain our strong tourism background at the same time attract a new kind of investment that will provide a greater spectrum of employment opportunities and, most importantly, will preserve our key asset: the natural environment.

We invite you to explore the possibilities in our beautiful valley. Contact the Canmore Economic Development Authority for detailed information on doing business in Canmore or enter here if you are interested in working in Canmore.
