A town in the province of Alberta, Cochrane sits only 18km from Calgary along the Highway 1A and is one of the fastest growing communities in the whole of the country. It has a history dating back to 1881 when it was known as the Cochrane Ranch and became a village in 1903. It wasn't incorporated as a town until the year 1971 and today has a population of 26,320 folk into outdoor pursuits such as golfing, hiking and windsports with the creative souls heading to a coworking venue before heading into the wilds. A small industrial hub, its major industries include construction, retail, ranching (aka agriculture) and timber. Its real lure is the fact that it is one of the very few places in Canada with no business tax.
Canada is being touted as the business world's best-kept secret especially in the fields of artificial intelligence, clean technology and health care. Today it's competing on a global stage and is a major destination for commercial investment. The government is empowering new companies by hosting technology industry events featuring some of the world's best innovators and attracting international talent to work on world-changing innovations. The number of skilled foreign workers is skyrocketing, and many scaling firms are actively hiring from overseas.
Cochrane may not be a tech hub per se, but it does sit in the region that is seeing a "brain-gain" rather than a "brain-drain" happening with students and scientists arriving in record numbers. The public and commercial sectors are supporting entrepreneurial communities by connecting them with the best academic institutions and businesses. Coworking venues are an integral cog in the ecosystem wheel of the entrepreneur community that is rapidly expanding throughout Alberta.
