Location

The Innisfail area has long been considered one of the most practically located in the entire province.

Distances

Innisfail is within a short distance of several major urban centres. As well, an hour’s drive can take you anywhere from mountains, badlands and forests, to lakes, rivers and plains. The town is truly at the centre of it all.

Highways

Innisfail sits immediately adjacent to the Queen Elizabeth 2 Highway (known colloquially as the QE2) and is located near the midway point of the Calgary-Edmonton corridor -- one of the most economically vibrant regions in the entire country.

The QE2 provides direct access to Calgary and Edmonton, and also leads to a number of other active trade routes that traverse Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. As well, the highway links to the CANAMEX Trade Corridor, connecting Innisfail to the United States and Mexico through one of the most important trade routes in the continent.


Innisfail lies at the heart of a 200-km radius trading area with a population of over 2.5 million people. The town is also connected by rail to millions more in the Western US market, and to the rest of the world through ports in Vancouver and along the West Coast.
