Edson, AB

Edson is a town in west central Alberta and is a two-hour drive west of Edmonton and five hours from Calgary.  The 1980s saw the development of spruce mills and forest industries, the city’s major employers. Edson lies in the McLeod River valley, immediately east of the Canadian Rockies foothills.



In 2012, the population was over 8 500 residents. The age average of the population is 34.  



Edson has a humid continental climate with relatively low year-round precipitation. Its dry climate, which results in reduced humidity, causes the summer heat and winter cold feel less severe than in places with higher humidity. Typically, summer lasts from late June until early September, and the humidity is seldom uncomfortably high. Winter lasts from November to March, and varies greatly in length and severity. Spring and autumn are both short and highly variable.



Apartment: One bedroom starting at $675 and two bedrooms starting at $775 monthly.

Housing: Three-level condo starting at $160K and four bedrooms and 2 bathrooms starting at $330K.
