Inter-provincial and international immigration into the region continues to be an inspiring and creative factor in the real estate development of Fort McMurray. Local municipalities continue efforts to attract more visitors as well as to build cohesiveness with its local community through expansion efforts and to offer greater attractiveness in the city centre area development plans and projects.
