Two primary industries dominate in the Stettler region- agriculture (ranching and grain farming) and oil & gas. Agriculture is the mainstay, which employs most of the rural population and supports a healthy agricultural sector within the Town of Stettler. Agriculture is the greatest contributor to Stettler's economic stability and offers many opportunities. Stettler farmers produce such diverse items as dairy products, straw, hay, barley, canola, oats, honey, poultry, cattle, hogs, and rye. As the town is in the heart of a very productive agricultural industry, there is not only great potential to provide numerous services to the area farmers, but also to become involved in food-processing.
Tourism has become a big part of Stettler's economy with the advent of Alberta Prairie Railway Excursions. In addition, Stettler attracts sportsmen from all over with the abundance of hunting and fishing in the surrounding area. Also within the Town of Stettler, a significant level of employment is concentrated in the government services and trade industries.
