Airdrie community profile

The City of Airdrie is the second largest community in the Calgary Region. One of Canada’s fastest-growing communities, Airdrie has a youthful population of more than 43,000 citizens. This is reflected in a dynamic community spirit and progressive approach to growing and developing the city. Local industry includes transportation and logistics, manufacturing, oil and gas servicing companies, professional services and environmental industries.

Airdrie’s excellent infrastructure and affordable land base have fueled commercial and industrial development and attracted the attention of companies like Costco, which use Airdrie as a central logistics hub. A key business advantage is strategic location: Airdrie lies on the major transportation corridor (Highway 2) linking Calgary, Edmonton and Alberta to the United States, and is within 15 minutes of both the Calgary International Airport and CN’s 680-acre Calgary Logistics Park (under construction). With new commercial and light industrial developments across the city, Airdrie offers diverse employment for local residents and shovel-ready land development opportunities for businesses and investors.
