The major economic base of Taber is food processing, oil and gas well servicing and agricultural services. The Town also boasts a strong retail sector as it acts as a service centre for the surrounding rural areas.

The Town of Taber lies in the center of a rich irrigated diversified farmland belt, high in heat units and frost free days, with transportation links to major markets. Taber is located only 60 miles (98 km) north of the United States border and is situated 32 miles (50 km) east of Lethbridge and 169 miles (272 km) southeast of Calgary.

Evidence of economic growth can be found in Taber’s value added processing industries. Taber and district is home to a number of companies such as:

• Lantic (Roger’s Sugar)
• Lucerne Foods
• Alberta Pool Bean Business Unit
• Frito-Lay Canada
• Lamb Weston
• Gouw Quality Onions
• Chin Ridge Seed Processors

Other community facilities include a hospital, a curling club, a skateboard park, a Seniors’ Centre, ped/bike trails, and many neighbourhood parks.  From a retirement perspective the mild weather, proximity to the mountains and affordable property ownership are all benefits of living in Taber.
