The Stettler area is known as the "Heart Of Alberta". Stettler's central location makes it an attractive location for distribution and manufacturing. Oil and natural gas, coal, sulfur, gravel, sand, agricultural and dairy products are some of the raw resources found in the Stettler vicinity. The population of Stettler's main trading area is over 11,000 people. The proximity of many rural communities creates a potential market of over 38,000 people. We often get to see folks from the North towards Camrose, the South towards Drumheller, the East towards the Saskatchewan border and the West towards Red Deer. The Stettler Visitor Information Centre is located within the Stettler Regional Board of Trade and Community Development offices located along Hwy 12 in the west end of Stettler, between ATB Financial and Tim Horton's.
