Alex Metcalfe was one of the founding members of EDA and was the first President in 1974.  It is fitting his name be used to honour 3 winners whose economic development projects have demonstrated excellence in:
  • Business & Investment Attraction
  • Business Retention & Expansion
  • Community Economic Development

The awards honour three nominees for their superior work in economic development in Alberta over the past year and are judged from among the 3 Group winners of each Category at the Community Awards level.   

The winners from each Category, from each Group, will automatically go forward as Finalists for the Alex Metcalfe Award in their respective Category. For example, if there are three winners in the BIA category, each will automatically compete for the Alex Metcalfe Award in BIA. Only one winner will be chosen in each category.


An Alex Metcalfe Award represents recognition for the "best of the best" project in each Category.
