A stone’s throw from Edmonton, Morinville is an ideal residence for those who work in “The Big E” but prefer to kick back in a quieter environment when the working day is through. Other Morinvillains (for lack of a better demonym) punch the clock in neighboring St. Albert, one of the region's most rapidly growing business hubs. Still, others have the luxury of earning a paycheck without leaving town, as Morvinville is home to nearly 450 businesses in a range of industries.
Lured by low crime rates, great schools, and affordable housing, Morinville’s population has rose steadily throughout the past decade to over 9,400. Home to an eclectic, walker-friendly downtown, cozy suburbs, and wide-open rural spaces alike, it’s a city whose 11 square kilometers offer an ambiance for all.
