Why Edmonton Global?
Together, we strengthen the Edmonton Metropolitan Region’s global competitiveness, growth and innovation.
The economic development and marketing efforts within the Edmonton Metropolitan Region have been fragmented with Spruce Grove and the other municipalities pursuing their own initiatives. This has placed the EMR at a serious disadvantage in conveying a consistent message that could be marketed with national and international audiences.
Recognizing the need for a more collaborative approach, Edmonton Global - an organization to advance economic development cooperation amongst stakeholders, to promote the region globally, and to attract and retain business investment and trade for the region.- was established. The City of Spruce Grove is one of the 15 member municipalities that make up the stakeholder group and is an active member of the professional board of directors.
