Mayor’s Message


 Welcome to the City of Brooks, recognized nationally for its civic pride and beauty as six-time winner of Communities in Bloom. 

We are blossoming as one of Canada’s 25 youngest communities and a population that is sprouting faster than any other city in southeast Alberta.  We hope you will join in the fun and energy of our young city.


While you are here, be sure to make a splash.  Our recreational centre offers fun for the whole family with a wave pool, lazy river, waterslide, hot tub and sauna, surrounded by colourful murals that depict our regional wonders.  For the real thing, head to Lake Newell to catch some sun on the beach, pitch a tent and boat on the largest lake in southern Alberta.  Sailors, be sure to check out the Prairie Wind Regatta in July for the most spectacular nautical event in the west. 


There’s a reason we manage to stay so young around here.  Brooks is a place for the whole family.  We pride ourselves on the quality of our green spaces, with an 18-hole golf course and walking trails for mom and dad, and numerous playgrounds, a skateboard and water park for the kids. 


This year, be sure to take in the Kinsmen Pro Rodeo in June for the parade, dance and, of course, the buckin’ bulls.  Summer also brings out local arts and culture with Shakespeare in the Park and the Medieval Fair.  In the fall, be sure to check out the Newell Regional Expo for the sights and sounds of the region.  The event will celebrate all that is Brooks and the County with interactive displays, performances, speakers, tours and more.  Finally, come back in November when Kevin Martin and world’s top curlers square off during the Cactus Pheasant Curling Classic.        

 
No matter what you’re looking for, we have it in Brooks, Alberta’s Centennial City. 
To all visitors, we extend a warm welcome to our community. 


Martin Shields, Mayor


 

Area Overview

Region
The diverse manufacturing and service base of Brooks is located in one of the most geologically and agriculturally rich areas of Alberta. The region is a leader in oil and gas, agriculture, food processing, retail and construction. Located two hours east of Calgary and one hour west of Medicine Hat on the TransCanada Highway (Highway #1), along the CPR main line, Brooks is an oasis in the heart of south-eastern Alberta. As a four-time Communities in Bloom champion, Brooks combines both industry and aesthetics.

Growth
By any measure, Brooks and the south-eastern Alberta region are pushing ahead. While Canadian unemployment is at a 30-year low of 6%, Alberta leads the provinces at 3.8% and Brooks is a province leader at 2.9%. A prosperous labour market has fuelled a diverse economy. With a weekly payroll of $9.5 million, family expenditures are higher than most regions in the province, the housing market climbed 17% in 2007 and over $54 million in projects have been planned in the region. The regional population surge of 3% a year and a strong influx of foreign talent means Brooks is only growing.

Cost Advantages
In addition to lower labour costs, Brooks has a competitive tax environment: property and utility taxes are among the best in the province. Alberta has no provincial sales tax, provincial general capital tax, and no machinery and equipment tax.

Resources
Brooks is a hub of service industries, transportation routes, recreation and telecommunications. Energy costs are low and utilities are both cost effective and stable. Our children receive top quality education at all levels and we are host to the new Medicine Hat College Campus of Brooks. As part of the Palliser Health Region we have extensive health and medical care throughout all areas and providing us with up-to-date news and information are two local radio stations and newspapers.

Opportunities
With a younger work force and average farm receipts in the range of $100,000 to $249,999, the region is home to the most profitable farmers in Alberta. In addition to a healthy agricultural economy we also support a growing oil and gas industry with increasing investment and developmnet opportunities. All the major players in the oil and gas sector have operations here. The region is home to 48% of all wells in Alberta and 37% of all wells in Canada with 4,000-5,000 people employed in the industry and over 170 service firms.

Recreation
There is no shortage of fun and activity in Brooks. We host recreational facilities and areas for golfing, camping, hunting, swimming, fishing, curling, and skating - just to name a few. The newly built Lakeside Leisure Centre is the current home to 2 indoor skating arenas, multi-purpose rooms, workout gym, basketball and volleyball court, curling rink, and an aquatic centre which houses a 35 metre indoor swimming pool, waterslide, waterpark, sauna, and steamroom. Just south of Brooks is the popular Lake Newell, one of the country's largest man-made lakes and a favourite for fishing, boating and sailing. Finally, just north of Brooks is the world heritage site Dinasaur Park, a whoel other world of hoodoos and fossils.

Among the reasons why you should look to Brooks as a home or business location are:

  • High calibre of services provided by the municipality;
  • High standard of life with quality educational, medical and recreational services available;
  • Adjacent to major transportation corridors;
  • Affordable housing - everything from entry level to executive;
  • Combined tax and utility rates very competitive with other Alberta communities;
  • Affordable labour force with a strong work ethic;
  • Centrally located in southeast Alberta;
  • Province of Alberta has no sales tax or payroll tax;
  • Provincial Corporate Income Tax is among the lowest in Canada;
  • Four-time Communities in Bloom winner; and
  • Continuous major developments.

The Alberta Advantage

Alberta’s economy is thriving - it has the highest rate of economic growth in Canada at 3.8% in the last ten years! Alberta has also consistently been the province with the highest investment per capita (Source: Alberta Economic Development). Southeast Alberta in particular has a flourishing energy sector, agri-food (including value-added agriculture), research and development in the area of defence, engineering and construction, metal fabrication and machinery, non-metallic minerals, and tourism (Source: Palliser Economic Partnership).

Economic Base

Regional Business Database

View the regional business database: This database features information on virtually every business enterprise residing in the City of Brooks and surrounding district.

Overview

The Brooks’ economy continues to experience strong growth, which at present is being driven by three main sectors. Once largely dependent on the oil and gas industry, the Brooks and regional economy has diversified to create a healthy and stable economy.

Agriculture

The agricultural economy remains a vital element of the Brooks’ economy. There is:

  • 260,000 irrigated farmland acres;
  • 600,000 acres of cultivated dry land farming; and  
  • 600,000 acres of native and improved rangeland in the region.

The availability of ample water from irrigation projects has assisted the agricultural economy's stability. In addition, a large range of businesses that offer goods and services to the agricultural sector are also present in Brooks and the surrounding area, including supplies of irrigation equipment and machinery.

The agricultural sector is further supported by a number of research and development facilities dedicated to crop improvement and diversification efforts. The most notable of which is the Alberta Crop Diversification Centre located on the boundary of Brooks, and operated by the Alberta Provincial Government.

The food processing industry is a significant contributor to the agricultural sector. Tyson Foods (Lakeside Packers) is among the largest of its type in North America. Beef and beef products are exported from this plant to retailers and consumers across North America. Lakeside is Brooks’ largest employer with approximately 2,500 employees.

Oil and Gas Industry

Oil and gas activity continues to form a strong element of Brooks’ economy. Ongoing drilling and exploration programs mean that these companies are creating a greater foundation for oil and gas in Brooks and region for the future. A much larger number of companies in Brooks are involved in the oil and gas service industries. These companies provide goods and services for exploration, and also to the production and delivery side of the industry. There are approximately 200 businesses in the Brooks area that are involved in the oil and gas industry in one form or another, resulting in an industrial concentration that is unique for a community the size of Brooks.


Retail and Service Sector

Brooks operates as the retail and service sector for the community as well as the surrounding region. The growth in population has been paralleled by a growth in the retail and service sector, and new businesses are opening as opportunities arise. As a regional service centre, Brooks has a wide range of urban amenities and services, such as retail services, accommodations and eateries, major leisure centre, representation from all five major banks, and professional, technical and financial services. Because Brooks operates as a regional service centre, and therefore retail and other service activities are a vital source of employment locally.

The trading area population is approximately 25,000, which encompasses a radius of 60 km (37 miles).

Brooks welcomes businesses and prides itself on its facilities to meet the needs of industry.

Taxation

Each year Council establishes a rate of taxation based on assessed values, sufficient to pay for those expenditures that are not recovered from other revenue sources. For 2007, the rate is $9.88 per $1,000 of assessed value for residential taxpayers and $14.82 per $1,000 for commercial and industrial taxpayers.

The Finance Department is responsible for the maintenance of over 5,000 different parcels within the City boundaries. Not only does the City generate annual and supplementary tax assessments but also surface irrigation levies, maintain the Tax Instlament Payment Plan, inventory City owned properties, provide timely response to assessment complaints and ensure compliance to tax recovery procedures.

Tax payments are due June 30th of each year. Tax notices are usually mailed out by May 15th each year. The due date is specified on the Tax Notices and is advertised two weeks before before the tax deadline in the two local newspapers.

Payments can be made directly to the City Office during regular business hours, through Internet banking, telephone banking and at most financial institutions. The City accepts cash, cheques, money orders, Interact and post dated cheques. For added convenience, there is a drop box located at the front enterance of the building.

T.I.P.P. - The Tax Instalment Payment Program is beneficial for those people who find it difficult to make a single payment that comes due once a year. The program is set up to allow the property owner to make monthly instalments with interest calculated at 2% per annum. For further information, please contact our Tax Department at (403) 362-3333.
