2013 Southern Alberta Floods
Due to flooding in Southern Alberta and BC in June 2013, EDA made a commitment to equip our members and other community leaders with valuable resources and training in order to help shorten their economic recovery time, while building local capacity should the need for this type of response be required again in the future.
As part of the Economic Disaster Recovery Program (EDRP), EDA provided a series of webinars in collaboration with IEDC; worked with BCEDA to organize 11 technical assistance teams to Alberta communities; provide business retention and expansion legacy infrastructure; trained elected officials; and Canadianized IEDC's resiliency toolkit. A Summary Report of the project was released in June 2014, and the Toolkit in September 2014.
Thank you to the organizational and funding partners for their support and commitment to this project.
