Economic Development Week
We all know that economic development is critical. It is the foundational work that helps to create jobs, support businesses, and improve the quality of life in communities large and small. These days everyone is talking about the importance of economic development because we are all feeling the impact the pandemic is having on the Alberta economy, and we recognize how this practice is bolstering municipalities, helping them recover. This year is an election year in municipalities across Alberta. It is also a great reason to encourage municipalities, large and small, to formally recognize and celebrate May 9-15, 2021 as "Economic Development Week" in their community.
Alberta Community Challenge
This year, AUMA and RMA have joined us in order to help amplify economic development efforts in our province by taking part in the 2021 Community Challenge. So get involved!
Your involvement in the 2021 Community Challenge gives you a voice. It lets your community know you value economic development, and helps strengthen support for the work your economic development staff does throughout the year.
