The Brooks Newell Region covers a large rural area in southeastern Alberta and includes eight hamlets within the County of Newell. Municipalities within the region include the City of Brooks, the Town of Bassano and the Villages of Duchess and Rosemary.
The region is well positioned to access markets across Canada and beyond as it is central to Calgary, Medicine Hat and Lethbridge with less than 190 kilometers of separation between each city.
The region is a growing transportation hub with the TransCanada Highway and secondary Highway 36 intersecting at the City of Brooks’ boundaries. Highway 36 is a major route for commercial traffic and intersects the TransCanada Highway at Brooks, connecting the region to the oil sands in the north and the United States to the south.
