Economic Development Week 

May 8-12, 2023

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. 

We encourage municipalities, large and small, to formally recognize and celebrate May 8-12, 2023 as "Economic Development Week" in their community and take part in our Community Challenge.

          Alberta Community Challenge

          Alberta municipalities, join us to amplify economic development efforts in our province by taking part in the 2023 Community Challenge! Officially proclaim "May 8-12 as Economic Development Week.” 

          For the third year in a row, we are working with our partners Alberta Municipalities and Rural Municipalities Alberta in order to encourage their members to get involved. 

          Involvement in the 2023 Community Challenge gives communities the opportunity to show their commitment to economic development, and strengthen support for the work of economic development staff. We encourage communities to:

          • Customize the 2023 Sample Resolution
          • Have your Council/Mayor officially proclaim the week in your community and sign the resolution
          • Share the proclamation with local media, and on your social media pages, and tag us @edaalberta.
          • Email to have it added to the EDA website.
