Taber is located in the heart of Southern Alberta, a region known for its rich agricultural lands, vast oil and gas activities and as regional powerhouse of food processing. The central location puts Taber at the cross roads of Highway 3 and Highway 36, providing easy access to major centers such as Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and Calgary. Approximately one hour from Alberta's major port of entry to the US, businesses are connected to the US Interstate 15 at the Coutts border crossing, a CANAMEX trade corridor.
Taber is positioned as a strategic place for businesses as it offers affordable land and development prices while also offering a close proximity to larger markets. The surrounding agricultural area and numerous hamlets and villages contribute to Taber's strong and stable economy through trading relationships. Strong evidence of this is shown in the comprehensive retail sector not typically seen in Town's of similar size which services the surrounding areas.
