Thorhild County is located approximately 90 kilometres north of the City of Edmonton. It is bordered by the counties of Sturgeon, Westlock, Athabasca, and Smoky Lake. Highway 63, the gateway to the extremely active Fort McMurray region, is very easily accessed from this municipality. Also, Alberta’s Industrial Heartland is nearby – within a 45 minute drive. Businesses and industries looking to serve these two important regions would enjoy many benefits by locating in Thorhild County. Commercial lots just east of the Hamlet of Thorhild are readily available with access to Edmonton water.

Incorporated in 1955, Thorhild County is a primarily rural municipality encompassing 2000 square kilometres.  As of the 2016 census, the County’s population is 3254 with 1973 dwelling units.  The hamlets of Abee, Egremont, Long Lake, Newbrook, Opal, Radway, and Thorhild are located within the municipality.  There are opportunities for many diverse lifestyles – from hamlet and acreage living to a variety of farm operations.  The region is poised to welcome the industries, small and home-based businesses, and labour force that will fuel the local economic growth that is forecasted.
