Longevity

Fort Road was the Main Street for one of the initial settlements in Edmonton, the Village of North Edmonton.  It was a railway hub and a meatpacking hub. That industry has relocated but Fort Road still remains an active commercial/industrial area with many businesses that have a long history.

Revitalization

While Fort Road still honours its history as the hub of western Canada’s meatpacking industry, it is now striving to become a new commercial/industrial hub to serve a growing northeast Edmonton.
