Based on the 2011 Census, Statistics Canada has ranked the Lethbridge region as one the top 15 fastest growing census agglomerations (CA) with growth pegged at 11.3% between 2006 and 2011 with a current population of 106,000. This growth is expected to continue with a projected population of 111,500 in the City and 12,300 in the County by 2026.

Both the City of Lethbridge and the Lethbridge County work closely with Alberta’s network of Regional Economic Development Alliances which include SouthGrow, Alberta Southwest and the surrounding communities and counties of southern Alberta.

One important example of this collaboration is the Southern Alberta Alternative Energy Partnership ( which encompasses all streams of alternative energy: wind, solar, geothermal and biomass. We are actively working to attract a manufacturer to the region in order to complement the abundance of wind farms that are currently in operation or planned for future development.
