When you talk about Lethbridge, three words quickly surface:
We are one of Canada’s sunniest cities (320 days of sunshine each year). Bring sunscreen and shades.
Think a flowing landscape running along the river valley. Once you see them, you’ll never forget them.
Yes — windy days warm our winters. But the breeze is indicative of our people. It’s a force that moves us all to do more. Be more. Be better. We don’t settle. And neither will you.
Home to 95,000 people, Lethbridge is a place where ideas grow. We are a campus community. Culturally vibrant with a flourishing arts scene and active social scene. Alberta’s big sky. Stunning scenery (the High Level Bridge and the Oldman River). Four distinct seasons. Spectacular sunrises and glowing sunsets. Look west and you’ll see vast prairies and the peaks of the Rocky Mountains, which are only a short drive away (unbelievable skiing, boarding, biking, hiking and camping opportunities await). Drive anywhere in our city in 20 minutes. Park with pocket change.
With both a college and a university, Lethbridge is a varsity town. This means there is plenty to do both on campus and off. Listen to a band, go for coffee, watch a movie (we have a theatre — owned and operated by a uLethbridge alumnus — where movies are only $4!), check out festival square or go to a play in Galt Gardens, sing at an open mic or check out a comedy show. There’s truly something for everyone.
