      In one word, Medicine Hat is “sunshine.”
      We are a warm, vibrant, feel-good city, with the attitude and natural backdrop to match. We honour our city’s heritage while fostering progress, innovation and entrepreneurship. We are a dynamic bright spot, with an emerging and growing creative culture. And our quality of life truly does shine.
      Medicine Hat residents are friendly, welcoming and kind. Many of us have come from across the country and around the world to make this city our home – and we embrace others who want to do the same. We welcome visitors, host events and showcase our city with pride. We open our wallets and our hearts to those in need. We are resilient in our neighborhoods and across our community.
      Our scenic landscape is anchored by the broad and mighty South Saskatchewan River, carved coulees and rolling prairies. Wildlife thrives along the river’s edge and in park spaces, as well as school yards and backyards. The sun rises and sets in glorious displays of colour and stars light up the night sky. Our city is a beautiful, natural sight to see.
      Our community is safe, comfortable, affordable and where family and friends gather to celebrate their lives. Opportunity abounds, in business and in pleasure, without the commutes, crowds and big-city hassles. We experience life up close and personal. Medicine Hat is a soft landing and a springboard, a retreat and a hive of activity – and always a place to savour life.
      And, of course, Medicine Hat boasts more days of sunshine per year (330) than any other city in Canada. We have hot summer nights and chinook-cheered winter days. Our city is warm at heart and in life.
      Medicine Hat has a Sunshine State of Mind.
