Alberta’s Industrial Heartland (September 2, 2014) – Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association was recognized in the seventh annual Canada’s Best to Invest awards by Site Selection. The Association was named one of the Top 10 Canadian Economic Development Groups for a second straight year.

Site Selection is a leading international publication focusing on economic development. Their annual Canadian awards and ranking of economic development groups are based on project data, regional partnerships, innovative programming, and quality of resources.

“Our partnership of municipalities is dedicated to enhancing sustainable economic growth in the Heartland region,” explained Wayne Woldanski, Chair of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association. “It is rewarding to be named among the top economic development groups in the country.”

The Association was formed in 1998 by the City of Fort Saskatchewan, Lamont County, Strathcona County, and Sturgeon County. In 2010, the City of Edmonton became the fifth municipal partner. Three Associate Members were recognized in 2011: Towns of Bruderheim, Gibbons, and Redwater.
