Value-Added Agriculture

Battle River Alliance for Economic Development (BRAED)

The Village of Forestburg, part of the Battle River Region in Alberta, is looking for companies in pulse and canola value-added agricultural industries to invest and develop in the community and take advantage of its significant agricultural assets. 

Forestburg's rich black soil allows traditional crops such as wheat, oats and barley to thrive in the area. There has been an increase in market gardens and greenhouse operations. The production of dry peas is a major part of local agriculture, offering ample opportunities for milling and processing of pulses and plant-based protein production. 

Explore growth and investment opportunities in the Battle River Region. Take advantage of our agricultural assets to increase your production output, eliminate deficiencies and grow in one of the most promising pulse and canola hubs in North America. 

Forestburg has an innovative and vibrant manufacturing sector for items such as agricultural implements, truck and parts accessories. The Village and surrounding area boast a number of highly qualified welders offering custom steel fabrication and manufacturing. 

Forestburg is a vibrant, friendly community that offers an exciting blend of recreational and cultural opportunities and business services. Its friendly, active community also features very affordable housing options compared to urban centers. Lots are available for new industrial construction. In addition, Forestburg offers low tax rates and provides excellent infrastructure for business development. 

Forestburg is a member of the Battle River Alliance Development (BRAED), a partnership of communities in East Central Alberta that works collaboratively to advance economic development from a regional perspective.
