The Calgary-Edmonton Corridor
Airdrie is located directly on Alberta's busiest artery, the Queen Elizabeth II Highway (formerly Provincial Highway 2), a major advantage for business and industry. As one of Canada's fastest growing regions, the Calgary-Edmonton Corridor is the most urbanized and heavily populated area in Alberta. The Corridor continues to take advantage of Alberta's growing energy sector and records some of the strongest economic gains in all of North America.
The Corridor is defined as the major north/south transportation route of the Queen Elizabeth II Highway between the cities of Edmonton and Calgary. Airdrie is located just six kilometres north of the Calgary city limits.
