Welcome to the City of Camrose. We are very proud of our community and hope that you will enjoy Camrose as a virtual visitor, tourist, resident, or business person.
Camrose is considered by many as one of the most beautiful cities on the prairies, boasting an exceptional quality of life for both citizens and visitors. We are committed to the preservation and protection of our natural park areas, our clean and healthy environment, and the safety of our residents.
Our community takes pride in our modern services, first class recreation facilities, all-embracing cultural opportunities, and extensive programs and services for all ages.
Located in the heart of rural Alberta, Camrose has a population of 17,000 and a trading area population exceeding 140,000. Our progressive growth, development, and diverse economy have contributed to our recognition as the Regional Centre for east-central Alberta.
Health care in Camrose is a major employer with a full service hospital, a huge medical community and several medium and extended care facilities. Incidentally, health care is our largest industry!
Housing options abound in Camrose from reasonably priced rental apartments, several subsidized accommodations, affordable residential lots and condo choices in every price range.
Shopping in Camrose is outstanding! All the major box stores are here and the historic downtown district is being restored in an ongoing program and has some truly unique shops and major stores.
Recreational needs are given high priority. You can enjoy an outstanding 18 hole golf course with reasonable fees, curling rink, floor curling in the senior centre, swimming pool with hot tub, five screen movie theatre, live theatre, an arts centre and more.
We are proud to call ourselves a University city with the University of Alberta's Augustana Campus located in the heart of the City.
Yes, there are lots of reasons to live or retire in Camrose. Whether you choose to simply walk around the lake pausing to feed the swans or to become a participant in the many other activities in Camrose, the choice is yours!
