Alberta Energy Corridor


Put the AEC to work for your business. Our Location is Your Solution.

The Alberta Energy Corridor is a government/industry funded agency focused on economic development in the Athabasca, Boyle and Wandering River area. Our mandate is to diversify the regional area by attracting a myriad of businesses that will increase long-term employment and community stability.

The Alberta Energy Corridor is centrally located to all major energy plays – Fort McMurray, Wabasca/Desmarais and Cold Lake – and occupies a key portion of the north-south transportation route between the Athabasca oilsands region of northern Alberta and refinery row adjacent to Edmonton. Its proximity to this industrial and energy hub provides commercial and industrial businesses with an accessible and economic location from which to serve their customers and markets. The area also neighbours the Industrial Heartland region of Alberta – site of a number of upgraders to process oilsands feedstock.

As a new economic development region, the Alberta Energy Corridor provides a growing industrial and commercial base and a broad array of businesses involved directly and indirectly in oil and gas, construction, forestry and traditional agriculture, with new developments in alternative energy.
