On the crossroads of Yellowhead Highway #16 and Buffalo Trail Highway #41, Vermilion is strategically located between the oil fields in Wainwright, Lloydminster, Elk Point and Cold Lake. All areas are easily accessible from Vermilion. Located within the Alberta HUB region Vermilion benefits and has access from the Cold Lake oil sands area as well as a major part of Athabasca oil sands - one of the largest oil and gas reserves in Alberta.

In Vermilion, land prices are moderate and new residential developments encourage easy and affordable relocation or start-up for businesses both large and small. As such the Town has developed three new business parks - a Highway Commercial Business Park adjacent to Highway 41 and two new industrial Business Parks.

The two industrial parks are strategically located - Yellowhead Business Park overlooking Highway 16 and East Point Business Park adjacent to the Vermilion Airport.  Both industrial parks have easy access to Highways 16 and 41. Millions of dollars of freight passing north and south between the Athabasca Oil Sands and the United States, as well as east and west across Canada, directly move past these business parks. Vermilion is only 200 km east of Edmonton and 61 km west of Lloydminster. Virtually all of the commerce that comes through town passes the two industrial business parks.
