We’re gathering feedback on ways to promote economic development in rural Alberta by further understanding opportunities to support investment and growth.

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 our rural communities participate in, and benefit from, Alberta’s Recovery Plan.
