There's always hope retirees from British Columbia and Ontario will sell and retire in Edmonton for tax reasons (no surtaxes or super surtaxes) and the cost of living being next to free.

Hopefully now that oil is recovering the city and provincial governments can hire more people and create more jobs in Edmonton.

Government jobs and construction have been the big driver in Edmonton employment recently.

Hopefully the government can hire more people??? Ugh, no thanks. The economy has been destroyed enough.

Single house is pretty hard to rent after people relocated because of the snow.

Agree 100%.

I lived in Edmonton and Calgary for a long time and now retire in Toronto.

Yes, it is more expensive, but winter is bearable and Europe and East coast is just a step away. Not to mention that you actually have something to do in the city.

Sure, Tony.
Who wouldn't want to leave British Columbia, with all its greenery, lakes, and mountains for a wonderful place like Edmonton where they can enjoy the mosquitoes in summer and the bitter cold in winter.

It looks to me, everybody is hopping to hit the jackpot listing at way higher prices than the value of the houses... or they need those prices to pay for their high debt...

@Tony not sure Edmonton is a destination for retirees!
