Discover what makes Medicine Hat a great place to live and learn!

Sunny, friendly, and full of services - Medicine Hat is a great place to call home. A city of just over 60,000 residents, Medicine Hat boasts more sunshine than any other Canadian city. With a moderate climate, over 100 kilometres of walking trails throughout the city, art galleries, unique shopping and more, this jewel of the prairies has something for everyone.

Medicine Hat has all of the benefits of a larger city including:

  • shopping
  • nightlife
  • restaurants
  • sporting events,
  • and cultural facilities,

while maintaining some of that smaller centre atmosphere like friendly people and short commutes to work and school. Located less than 300 kilometres from Calgary and 50 kilometres from the Saskatchewan border, Medicine Hat is well-positioned along the Trans Canada Highway.
