Cost of Doing Business

Lethbridge stands out in Western Canada as a hot spot, and not just because of the sunshine.

Businesses in Lethbridge continue to thrive within a supportive and competitive industry environment despite an economic downturn in other centres. Our sunny city offers a low cost operating environment with savings in areas such as: taxation, utilities, labour and transportation.

In a recent international business cost study by management consultants KPMG, Lethbridge ranked in the top three in terms of transportation, facility and location related costs. Lethbridge remains competive in a range of non-cost factors, including: labour availability and skills, economic conditions and markets, innovation, infrastructure, regulatory environment, cost of living and quality of life.

  • Operational Costs - the operating costs associated with business: facilities, transportation, labour, etc.
  • Construction and Occupancy - the costs associated with building new facilities or taking over existing commercial or industrial spaces.
