Strathcona County is a specialized municipality within the Capital Region, and one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in North America. Within it, agriculture has historically been a major economic activity. However, in recent years as Strathcona County experienced rapid residential, commercial and industrial growth, agriculture is perceived by most residents as having a lower priority. Nevertheless, agriculture continues to be the largest land user within Strathcona County. Although relatively small in terms of area in comparison to other agricultural counties in Alberta, Strathcona County continues to be a highly productive agricultural municipality ranking 6th (out of 69 municipalities) in terms of revenues generated per acre.
