Thinking of Making Thorsby Your Permanent Residence or Place of Business

Thorsby is a wonderful place to set down roots, raise your family, start a business or retire. The town wishes to encourage growth and development of our community and provides a both residential & commercial development incentive program for those who wish to build within our municipal borders.

As a rural community, located in central Alberta only 45 minutes away from the Capital City of Edmonton, our location allows residents to have the “Best of Both Worlds” …. A rural environment only minutes away from the lake and with immediate access to all the amenities and services of a large urban center.  As the Town continues to grow, the peaceful, secure and friendly atmosphere of a small rural community remains. Thorsby offers an enviable quality of life for people of all ages and Council is committed to supporting the growth and development of the community and offers development incentives for both residential and business.
