We gathered feedback to identify opportunities that would increase investment and support economic growth in rural Alberta.

Increasing investment plays a key factor in recovering, economically, from the COVID-19 pandemic, the global collapse of energy prices, and the worst economic downturn in almost a century.

Discussions and feedback collected will ensure rural communities participate in, and benefit from, Alberta’s Recovery Plan.
