We continue to be one of the safest, secure and viable communities located within less than a 1-hour commute distance to larger service centers making it very attractive for city commuter / workers. We are connected to major highway & transport routes including Hgwy. 63 to Fort McMurray as well rail favorable to attraction of goods & manufacturing opportunities. 

Bring us your ideas: We'll make them work!  Our population is growing.  Your businesses ideas are the County's opportunities.  Thorhild County also offers a Business Incentive Grant Program and Non-Residential Small Business Sub-Class Bylaw as part of their Business & Investment Attraction Program (see "Business Bylaws"). The County has commercial, industrial and residential property for sale (see "Public Notices" as well "Property Listings").  The Thorhild Industrial Area Structure Plan was initiated to encourage economic development throughout the County.  This new Area is close to three phase power, Alberta's Industrial Heartland area, and existing municipal infrastructure. 

Enjoy country and small town living.  Thorhild County is a popular commuter community for Fort McMurray (Hgwy 63) and Alberta Industrial Heartland area employees.  A drive through the County reveals seven hamlets, business services, diversified farms, greenhouses, and recreation facilities for all ages. 

Thorhild County is a summer and winter adventure destination.  If you enjoy swimming and relaxing on the beach and scenic little campgrounds, then Long Lake Provincial Park and Half Moon Lake Natural Area are both a short drive from anywhere in the County.  White Earth Valley Natural Area is a naturalist's gem for hiking, mountain biking and trail riding in the summer or snowmobiling and Nordic skiing in the winter.
