Although the town still has a predominantly oil- and natural gas-based economy, efforts have been made to diversify. Completion of a hazardous waste disposal plant (1987) 18 km northeast of the town provides an alternative. The plant is designed to treat and dispose of many types of hazardous waste. The town is also a service centre for forestry activity in the area.
