Edson is a town in west-central Alberta, Canada. It is located in Yellowhead County, 192 kilometres (119.3 mi) west of Edmonton along the Yellowhead Highway and 10 kilometres (6.21 mi) east of the intersection with Highway 47.
The main sources of income are resource based (coal, natural gas, lumber, and building products).
There have been substantial changes in Edson since the 2001 census. The increasing price of gas and oil has brought boom times to this town, with a commensurate increase in population (close to 8,500 as of early 2008), a higher median family income, and very high increases in private dwelling values.
