As of 2017, Warman was officially the fastest growing municipality in Canada. This growth has been fueled largely by young families, with the average resident being 32.4 years of age, in a household just under 3 (2.9). A robust housing market, characterized by larger than average lots and comparable home prices, has helped Warman become the #1 place for families to call home. A strong and growing business community has developed, taking advantage of Warman's low corporate tax framework (2017 increase of 1.77%) and business tax incentive program with continued opportunities in retail, light industrial and manufacturing.
