“Business Link plays an important role in providing Alberta small businesses with the resources they need to thrive.

“As Alberta’s small business hub, they help Alberta job creators access one-on-one support and guidance, market research, training, networking opportunities and provide specialized support for Indigenous entrepreneurs.

“Since 1996, Business Link has helped thousands of clients start businesses, expand through investments, collaborate with post-secondary institutions and secure funding.

“Business Link has also helped Alberta entrepreneurs navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic by serving as a one-stop shop to connect small businesses to available COVID-19 supports based on their unique needs.

“The organization’s work supports job creation, economic growth and prosperity in regions and communities across the province.

“To recognize its ongoing support to Alberta entrepreneurs and businesses over the last 25 years, I am proud to declare June 23, 2021, as Business Link Day in Alberta.

“I would like to thank everyone at Business Link for helping Alberta businesses succeed.”
