Strategic Planning for the Future of Spruce Grove
Economic development is the intentional practice of improving a community's economic well-being and quality of life.
Spruce Grove’s Economic & Business Development team supports our city’s entrepreneurs, assists in business expansion and retention, and supports the growth of employment and the workforce. We execute marketing and attraction campaigns that target new investment and implement strategies to ensure Spruce Grove continues to be conducive to business success.
We strive to create a healthy business environment, foster a resilient, pro-growth tax base, and diversify our economy. A strong business community 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. Our success depends on collaboration with Council and other city departments, industry, and countless community stakeholders.
We work with our regional partners including Edmonton Global and the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board (EMRB) to strengthen our position in the global market and further our common goals. We also partner with the Spruce Grove & District Chamber of Commerce and the Spruce Grove City Centre Business Association to development and implement initiatives that benefit the region,
