The Canadian Encyclopedia states that:
“The majority of the land under irrigation in the Lethbridge area is devoted to forage and grain crops grown principally as livestock feed. However, irrigation also supports the production of canola, sugar beets, pulses and vegetables, and these are processed in the Lethbridge area. The manufacturing sector features several food-processing industries as well as some heavy manufacturing.
Irrigation water is also a vital ingredient for the many large-scale livestock operations found less than 20 km from the city's northern boundary. These livestock farms have a significant local economic impact, creating employment in livestock trade and transportation, as well as in companies supplying the agricultural sector.
The city functions as the service centre for surrounding agricultural communities; however, the information economy is also important. This is evident in the growth of Lethbridge College (1957), the Lethbridge Research Centre and Development Centre (1906, which houses both federal and provincial agricultural research facilities) and the University of Lethbridge (1967). Both the university and the college are significant employers.
Lethbridge has become a retirement destination with adult condominiums and residences offering various levels of care for the elderly. These have become a noticeable feature of the cityscape and its economic structure.”
