Acreage Pharms Ltd. is located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, near the rural hamlet of Peers, Alberta.
The region offers employees and their families many outdoor recreation activities, including hiking, camping, rafting, skiing, off-roading and sport fishing. Jasper (153Km West) and Banff National Parks offer stunning views and year-round activities for outdoor lovers. A bit farther West, you can cross the British Columbia border and find even more beatiful mountain parks, such as Mt. Robson Provincial Park.
Many Acreage Pharms employees who prefer living in nearby towns commute from places such as Edson (41Km), Whitecourt (64Km), or Evansburg (74km). Of course, if you want to experience country living, there’s also many opportunities to live on rural acreages and farms in the surrounding area.
The nearest large city, Edmonton, is about a 2 hour drive East.
For those considering relocating from outside the province, Alberta has a reputation for being one of the most livable places in Canada, with a combination of relatively high wages, and a generally lower cost of living and taxes.
