It’s Economic Development Week

Minister of Jobs, Economy and Innovation Doug Schweitzer issued the following statement on Economic Development Week, May 9-15:

“Alberta’s economic developers have long been partners in creating jobs and growth. This week is an important opportunity to celebrate their hard work and recognize the valuable role that they will play in our province’s recovery.”

“Our economic developers contribute to the economic and social well-being of our hometowns and neighbourhoods.”

“COVID-19 has presented us with challenges our generation hasn’t seen before, but together, we will overcome this.”

“Economic development is a team sport, and pulling together as a team is more important now than ever. From regional agencies and economic development professionals in our municipalities, cities and small towns and villages – to the businesses, industry, post-secondary institutions, entrepreneurs and investors they work with – countless Albertans will play a part in supporting recovery, and eventually growth in communities across our province.”

“Alberta is full of innovators and has foundational strengths that we can build on. By working together, I know Albertans will come out the other side of this pandemic stronger than ever.”

“We’re continuing to plan for Alberta’s economic recovery with a bold, ambitious long-term strategy to build our province, accelerate economic diversification in industries of the future, make Alberta more competitive in the long term and create jobs – and we’ll achieve this with the help of Alberta’s economic developers.”
