Straddling the border that divides the Western Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan, Lloydminster is a bustling rural business centre. Lloydminster is a regional powerhouse to a trade area of over 160,000.
When the rest of the world flounders to keep a float in the failing economy, Lloydminster and its diverse economy barely skips a beat. Lloydminster is noted for its strong Agricultural and Energy industries, these industries are complemented and supported by very robust retail and service industries.
In 2008, Financial Post named Lloydminster as one of the top cities for small business in Canada. In 2010 The Canadian Federation of Business identified the City of Lloydminster as the second best Canadian city for entrepreneurs to locate. A sure sign that Lloydminster’s key sectors are diverse and flourishing.
