The Best Edmonton Neighbourhoods for Young Professionals

The Best Edmonton Neighbourhoods for Young Professionals

Edmonton is becoming known for being a hub for many young professionals. With a massive migration of working youth packing their bags in Toronto or Vancouver and heading to good ol' Edmonton for the promise of high wages and a lower cost of living.

This younger generation of white-collar professionals often has specific housing needs that differ slightly from those on either side of their age range. For example, while younger students are often looking for cheaper first-time housing or rentals, most young professionals have already finished their educations. They are more likely to seek independent housing space to call their own.

On the flip side, young professionals are often not quite ready to settle down with a family like the older generation before them. In fact, this generation of millennials are settling down later than any before them; as such, locating their homes in areas with the top elementary schools may not be among their priorities.

Though every person’s needs are different; in general, the best places to live in Edmonton for young professionals have a few common factors:

Close to their workplace

Easy access to public transit

Proximity to grocery stores

Lively area with many night-life options

Fortunately, Edmonton has many incredible neighbourhoods to choose from that are perfect for today’s young professionals. Here are just some of the many great areas in Edmonton for young working professionals:
