Oil and Gas
Highway 17, which is a main corridor to the oil and gas fields in Northeastern Alberta, and Highway 14, a High Load Corridor for major oil development products, are both adjacent to Edgerton. Reasonable land costs, developed infrastructure, and direct access to markets in the oil and gas industry make Edgerton a wise choice for investment and opportunity in the sector.
Agriculture in the region is a major economic sector with diversity ranging from grain and specialty crops to domestic and specialty livestock. Producers mainly grow grains such as wheat, oats, barley and canola. Livestock is also a vital part of the industry, with increased activity in the rearing of hogs in ultra-modern facilities, and improved pastures to support larger herds of dairy and beef cattle.
