In January 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the novel coronavirus a global health emergency. The virus, known as COVID-19, was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.
Then, on March 11, 2020, the WHO assessed COVID-19 as a pandemic.
Just like our response to the 2013 Southern Alberta Flood, and the 2016 For McMurray Wildfires, in response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, EDA is taking the lead in providing ideas, tools and resources to accelerate business and economic recovery.

During the COVID pandemic, EDA held a series of FREE virtual seminars designed to connect us with community leaders from Alberta, across Canada and around the world. These weekly webinars provided information to help accelerate business and economic recovery, profiling various topics and/or industries, as well as post-COVID opportunities.
