Economic Development works closely with all levels of local municipal government in creating and sustaining strategic business sectors. Partnerships with other organizations help us nurture and encourage business development and growth.
As set out in our Economic Development Strategic Plan, we focus our marketing efforts on awareness campaigns designed to stimulate residential, commercial and industrial growth in Redwater. Partnering with local business, the creation of television and social media campaigns provide essential exposure for our community.
