In one word, Medicine Hat is sunshine.
We are a warm, vibrant, feel-good city, with the attitude
and natural backdrop to match.
We honour our city’s heritage while fostering progress, innovation and
entrepreneurship. We are a dynamic bright spot, with an emerging and growing
creative culture. And our quality of life truly does shine.
Medicine Hat residents are friendly, welcoming and kind.
Many of us have come from across the country and around the world to make this
city our home – and we embrace others who want to do the same. We welcome
visitors, host events and showcase our city with pride. We open our wallets and
our hearts to those in need. We are resilient in our neighbourhoods and across
Our scenic landscape is anchored by the broad and mighty
South Saskatchewan River, carved coulees and rolling prairies. Wildlife thrives
along the river’s edge and in park spaces, as well as school yards and
backyards. The sun rises and sets in glorious displays of colour and stars
light up the night sky. Our city is a beautiful, natural sight to see.
Our community is safe, comfortable, and affordable and where
family and friends gather to celebrate their lives.
And, of course, Medicine Hat boasts more days of sunshine
per year (330!) than any other city in Canada. We have hot summer nights and
chinook-cheered winter days. Our city is warm at heart and in life. Opportunity
abounds, in business and in pleasure, without the commutes, crowds and big-city
hassles. We experience life up close and personal. Medicine Hat is a soft
landing and a springboard, a retreat and a hive of activity – and always a
place to savour life.
Medicine Hat has a Sunshine State of Mind.
