The County of Minburn has been working with Outlook Market Research & Consulting Ltd. throughout 2022 to prepare an Economic Development Strategy. The intent of this strategy is to identify opportunities to support and grow existing business, attract new investment, increase the number of available jobs that will appeal to skilled workers, thereby increasing the overall population and wealth generation of the County.
The Economic Development Strategy shall provide relevant direction, outlining goals and outcomes for the County’s
Economic Development initiatives. Also, this strategy will identify areas where sub regional partnerships can be established with other municipalities.
