Edmonton metro region leads Canada in export growth

Based on Stats Can data available at https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/en/catalogue/71-607-X2019009

New data on export growth shows the Edmonton Metropolitan Region leading Canada – at more than double the national average.

Exports from the Edmonton CMA (census metropolitan area or Edmonton metro region) grew by 10.8% from 2010 to 2018. The national average over that time span was 4.8%. In 2018 alone, the Edmonton metro region’s exports exceeded $12 billion, with manufacturing accounting for $8.28 billion of that. Oil, gas, and mining extraction accounted for $2.1 billion of the region’s exports.

The Edmonton metro region is a manufacturing powerhouse in Canada and the growth in exports is part of what has fuelled the region’s overall strong growth across the 2010 to 2018 timespan captured in this Stats Can report.
