Digital Economy Program
When over 95% of businesses in Alberta are small businesses, supporting them in a competitive world is critical. That’s why the City of Spruce Grove has joined the Digital Economy Program, with the University of Alberta as a strategic partner, to offer you and your business an opportunity to transform your online presence.
The program is delivered through a partnership between the City of Spruce Grove, University of Alberta, Business Link, and Digital Main Street. The program is funded by the Government of Alberta, Ministry of Jobs, Economy and Innovation.
