Stettler is located in the "Heart" of Central Alberta, at the junction of Highways 12 and 56. Just 80 kms west of Red Deer, Stettler is only a short drive to either Edmonton or Calgary (190 kms, and 225 kms, respectively). To the south Stettler is 100 kms away from Drumheller, which boasts Canada’s largest dinosaur museum, the Royal Tyrell Museum. To the north, the city of Camrose is only an 84 km drive.
This location not only gives the Town of Stettler easy access to virtually all of the services and amenities that the province of Alberta has to offer, but Stettler’s location makes it the economic hub of East Central Alberta. This trading area extends from the community of Alix in the west, all the way along the Hwy 12 corridor to the Saskatchewan border. Being the hub of such a large trading area means that Stettler is home to many city style amenities, while still maintaining a small town character.
The Oil & Gas, and Agricultural industries are at the core of the Stettler Area’s economy. Stettler serves as home to many major supply and service companies geared towards these industries. There is also the continuing push to promote small local businesses in all economic areas, as well as local tourism, in an effort to promote greater economic stability for the region.
The Town of Stettler boasts a full range of essential and emergency services, with the local RCMP detachment, Hospital, Ambulance Service, and volunteer Fire Department being at the core of these. There are two medical clinics in town, as well as two Optometrists, three Dentists, and several Chiropractic, Physiotherapy and Massage clinics. Stettler also has a nursing home, as well as several senior’s retirement homes.
Stettler’s small town attitude also means that Stettler boasts a low crime rate, as well as a laid back, small town life style.
