The Metro Edmonton Region’s largest industry on an employment basis is health care and social assistance, at 12 percent. Health care and social assistance was also the region’s fastest growing industry between 2006 and 2010.
Continued population growth, as well as a general increase in the number of older households, will create additional demand for health care and supportive services, especially for the elderly. Stony Plain is committed to aiding in the development of this opportunity via advisory committees, housing developments, health and wellness trade shows, and other recruitment strategies in order to capture demand from both internal market growth, as well as from neighbouring areas.
