A word from our mayor
The Town of Taber is located in the heart of Southern Alberta’s rich agricultural region. The abundant sunshine and many frost-free days contribute to the success of the agricultural industry. Besides the climate, the excellent soil conditions and extensive irrigation system have allowed for a diversity of crops to be grown in the surrounding area. This access to a variety of crops has made Taber home to a range of agricultural processing facilities.
Besides the agricultural industry, the oil and gas industry is also an integral part of the economy. Since the first discovery of oil, Taber has become an oil and gas service hub for the area, allowing the industry to offer many jobs with competitive wages.
Taber is located at the crossroads of Highway 3 and Highway 36 with short distances to major markets including Lethbridge and the United States. Recreational areas including the Rocky Mountains are also close by. The highway network, however, isn’t Taber’s only transportation system as the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) also services the Town.
The stable economy has created a secure and high quality of life for Taber’s residents. There are excellent medical and emergency services located within the community including a hospital, a local ambulance and 911 services, and a wide variety of other medical professionals. A local fire department and police services are also available within the community.
Taber offers a variety of educational options with both private and public school systems. The number of schools in the community contributes to the large amount of park space. Besides a vast amount of park space, Taber offers a number of other recreational facilities which residents can enjoy year round. The community also actively participates in volunteer initiatives with the Taber Spray Park and the Taber Gymnastics Club being the most recent examples.
