Originally from Ontario, I have lived here since 1997 and haven't left yet. It's a growing city and I have seen lots of positive changes throughout the years I've been here. I finished my B.Ed here at RDC (and the U. of A. collaborative program) and have had an easy time finding work; both in the oilpatch and in teaching. I love the trial systems here and the central location to easily access the bigger cities and more importantly the mountain parks. A 2-3 hour drive can get me deep enough into the mountains for camping, hiking, climbing, mountaineering, biking, fishing...etc.
I went to school and I loved it ! =-)
Very nice city. They have a wonderful dog park on the river.
Great Bike paths, Great bmx trails , lots of horseback riding
