Located in northeast Edmonton and north of the North Saskatchewan River, the EETP offers industrial investors convenient access to all major highways servicing Alberta’s northern resource extraction areas, Alberta’s high and heavy load corridors, Canadian National (CN) Railway’s Northern Rail Line and CN’s intermodal yards.
With major highways bordering its boundaries and rail and pipelines running through the EETP, investors have a good start on the infrastructure that they need to move goods and services to this location.
EETP's urban location provides access to a large, skilled labour pool, a buoyant domestic market and major transportation networks to move feedstock and materials in for processing and manufacturing and product out to market.
Edmonton is well connected across Canada via the Yellowhead Highway including the west coast ports of Prince Rupert, Kitimat and Vancouver. Edmonton’s transportation network connects quickly and cost-effectively to Western Canadian resources and markets. It also connects industry nationally, to the U.S. and global markets.
Canadian National Rail’s northern line provides rail and intermodal service to the Port of Prince Rupert and connects Edmonton through its transcontinental network to eight provinces, 16 American states and Mexico.
Canadian Pacific Rail connects Edmonton via rail and intermodal services to its southern Trans-Canada line between Vancouver and Montreal as well as key eastern U.S. markets.
The EETP is connected to the Alberta Hub, which links the Edmonton region to every major North American market by pipeline.
The EETP is well connected to the Edmonton International Airport (EIA) - one of the fastest growing airports in Canada. EIA offers both passenger and cargo services to Canada’s north and over 60 non-stop destinations. Cargo services are offered by 11 airlines through six cargo handling terminals, including direct service to Shanghai via Air China Cargo.
Edmonton and the EETP are located in the centre of Alberta’s Capital Region. Locating here offers investors the benefits from one of Canada’s fastest growing regional economies with over 1.1 million people and access to Alberta’s major supply and service centre for Alberta’s northern resource extraction sector.
Western Canada’s sustained economic and population growth have strengthened its position as a prime Canadian location for resource extraction or trade with Asia.
Western Canada’s growing population base will drive more goods and services into the region and the EETP’s proximity to major rail and intermodal yards provide a good location for regional logistics operations.
