The Edmonton Metropolitan Region offers a competitive and business-friendly tax structure. We say no to superfluous and high taxes, giving you more opportunities to say “yes” to investment.

Corporate taxes

The combined federal/provincial corporate income tax rate in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region is 23% (15% federal and 8% provincial) for general businesses and 11% (9% federal and 2% provincial) for small businesses with revenues below $500,000.

Alberta’s corporate tax rate of 8%, making the combined federal/provincial rate of 23%, is the lowest tax rate in Canada and is among the lowest corporate tax rates in North America.

This makes the Edmonton Metropolitan Region one of the most attractive regions in North America for employers to locate. It sends a clear message to international investors that Alberta is serious about being the most competitive jurisdiction to invest and do business in.

Personal income taxes

Albertans pay the lowest taxes in Canada (see Alberta Tax Plan for more information).
