Strategic Planning for the Future of Spruce Grove
Economic development is attracting and growing businesses, creating and retaining jobs, and making communities a better place to live.
The City of Spruce Grove’s Economic & Business Development department is dedicated to business growth and vitality. They provide support to entrepreneurs, assist in the business expansion and retention, and implement strategies targeted to new investment. A healthy business environment strengthens our economy by providing locally-produced goods and services and creating quality employment opportunities that allow for a higher quality of life. Strong businesses pay taxes that support vital services such as schools, roads, fire, and police.
Our efforts to stimulate economic growth while maximizing the best interests of the community is guided by the City's Economic Development Strategy & Action Plan and the leadership of our Economic Development Advisory Committee.
Collaboration with our regional partners strengthens our position in the global market and creates efficiencies in providing essential services. Spruce Grove actively works with both Edmonton Global and the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board (EMRB) to further our common goals.
The Government of Alberta provides economic development tax credits, grants, and other funding to help municipalities stimulate the regional and local economies.
