Government of AB: Listening to rural communities
The Associate Minister of Rural Economic Development will meet with business and community leaders from across rural Alberta to hear about what they need to promote economic development and prosperity in their communities.
Associate Minister Nate Horner will hold online meetings with rural businesses across various sectors, including business associations, chambers of commerce, Indigenous- and Métis-owned businesses, and industry and community leaders, to hear their ideas on how to ensure Albertans from every corner of the province benefit from Alberta’s Recovery Plan.
Alberta’s government will continue listening to Albertans to determine what steps can be taken to foster and promote economic development in the province.
Bringing investment back to Alberta
“Supporting local businesses and attracting new investment to Alberta is key to the success of our economic recovery after the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global collapse of energy prices and the worst economic downturn in almost 100 years. All Albertans, urban and rural, should benefit from Alberta’s Recovery Plan.”
Nate Horner, Associate Minister of Rural Economic Development
