Sylvan Lake has joined eight other municipalities/counties in promoting events within Central Alberta. The website www.centralalbertaevents.com
is an excellent guide for planning a summer vacation.
In addition to a strong tourism economy, Sylvan Lake benefits from its strategic location in the heart of the Edmonton - Calgary Corridor
, one of Canada's strongest and most productive economies.
Sylvan Lake's Central Alberta location also means we're home to some of the most prominent oilfield construction, development, and safety companies. As an ever-growing community, we are continuously welcoming new businesses to the community. Wal-mart, Sobeys and Shoppers Drug Mart recently joined Sylvan Lake's business community and much more!
