Calgary-based Emerald Management and Realty Ltd is located in Alberta, Canada, a scenic and vibrant province in the western part of the country.

Established as one of the three prairie provinces in 1905, Alberta borders the provinces of British Columbia to the west and Saskatchewan to the east, as well as the State of Montana to the south at the United States border. As one of the few landlocked provinces within Canada, Alberta makes up for a lack of waterways with an abundance of trees, wildlife, parklands and the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains.

Calgary lies at the crossroads of two of North America’s major highway systems: the Trans Canada Highway, which stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and the Canamex Corridor, which extends from Northern Canada to Mexico.

Economically speaking, Alberta designates the area’s plentiful supply of oil reserves; the Athabasca Oil Sands have estimated oil reserves in excess of those of the rest of the world, estimated at 1.6 trillion barrels. One of the largest purveyors of natural gas, Alberta continues to be recognized as a leading supplier of gas products, including conventional and synthetic crude oils. Petrochemicals are also widely produced in the region, making Alberta Canada’s leading producer of petrochemicals. There are two main petrochemical complexes in the province, one at Fort Saskatchewan, near Edmonton and the other located at Jeoffry near Red Deer

Agriculture also represents a significant part of Alberta’s economy. Cattle, sheep, wheat, and wool, as well as grains, buffalo, and canola serve as primary revenue generators for individuals and corporations alike.

Alberta also provides a home to a myriad of educational institutions, including the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary, University of Lethbridge, and Athabasca University. Additionally, Mount Royal University, the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, and Grant MacEwan University educate students in the region. Numerous private universities also exist, providing Alberta’s residents with a wide range of educational options and opportunity.

Investors from all sectors of the vibrant Alberta economy have relied on Emerald Management and Realty Ltd to manage their homes, apartments, and commercial properties while they fulfill the commitments of their demanding careers in Alberta’s growing economy. The firm’s goals include to realize long-term profitability for clients’ real estate investments; to minimize risks and maintain a selective, conservative approach to the management and development of properties; and to provide customers with high-quality and responsive management services.
