Transportation and Logistics

Sturgeon County is a large municipality that covers 2,100 square kilometers, serviced by 14 highways and six industrial areas. Owing to its large size, proximity and connectivity to both the Edmonton Metro Region and Alberta's Industrial Heartland, Sturgeon County boasts modern infrastructure and a large transportation and logistics industry.

Villeneuve Airport is the only general aviation airport in the Edmonton Metro Region with a NAV CANADA Air Traffic Control Tower. Edmonton International Airport (EIA) is currently updating the Strategic Plan for Villeneuve Airport, with completion anticipated in summer, 2019.

Synergy Aviation is a leading provider of flight training and environmental protection services. We partner with industry to provide timely, safe pipeline surveillance and integrity monitoring systems. Our pilots have over 150 years of combined flying experience in both rotary and fixed-wing aircraft and our base of operations at Villeneuve Airport proudly serves Alberta and western Canadian customers.

Based in the Sturgeon Industrial Park (SIP), Total Transload Services provides a complete line of transloading, dry bulk, storage and transportation services and solutions.

From bulk carriers that transport a wide variety of liquid and dry products such as Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs), crude oil and chemicals to Canadian National (CN), Canada’s largest Class I freight railway, transportation and logistics providers know that Sturgeon County provides them with an unparalleled opportunity to base and/or expand their business. Growing local volumes of agricultural, petrochemical and finished goods constantly need access to domestic and global markets. This ensures growth opportunities for transportation and logistics providers that can help move products to, from and within Sturgeon County.

The County and the Government of Alberta are undertaking numerous infrastructure upgrades to various roadways in Sturgeon County. The provincial government is investing $90 million in infrastructure upgrades to transform the Highway 38 bridge across the North Saskatchewan River, commonly known as the Vinca bridge. This will establish a critical link in Alberta’s High Load Corridor, saving heavily loaded trucks about 200 kilometres of travel.

Villeneuve Airport, located in the southwest portion of the County and just a few minutes West of St. Albert, is home to 23 businesses involved in aircraft flight training, fixed-wing aircraft maintenance, helicopter maintenance and aviation operations. A significant amount of new, privately-funded development is currently taking place at Villeneuve Airport. There are six newly-leased lots under development and 14 newly sub-divided greenfield lots available for lease.

Sturgeon County has multiple rail-ready sites available for development. Many locations in our I4 Medium Industrial Serviced District and I5 Heavy Industrial District include rail spurs, rail right-of-way (ROW) or Public Utility Lots (PULs) that enable direct connection to this critical transportation and logistics infrastructure.
