Cost of living
Alberta offers many cost-of-living advantages compared to the average cost of living in Canada. Albertans pay no provincial premiums for health care insurance. We are also the only province with:
- no provincial sales tax
- the lowest tax on gasoline
- among the lowest property taxes in Canada
Residents of small communities enjoy all modern amenities and an even lower cost of living. This cost-of-living advantage is based on:
- shorter commute times
- reduced housing prices
- affordable consumer goods
- Use the 2010 Alberta Spatial Price Survey to compare prices among Alberta communities.
