BUSINESS SUPPORT NETWORK:

The Fox Creek Business Support Network (BSN) is intended to be an ongoing group of businesses, business organizations, and government, who identify and work together to address business and workforce challenges in the region. The partnerships formed through BSN contribute to the long-term sustainability of Fox Creek and its surrounding areas. The BSN meetings which are held every third Tuesday of the month are intended to be an open and positive setting for business groups and individuals to collaborate, exchange ideas, and information on current labour market trends, and to address workforce development, attraction, and retention challenges.

Alberta Regional Dashboard
The Alberta Regional Dashboard allows you to access economic and quality of life indicators for each of Alberta's municipalities to help answer questions about living, working, investing and doing business in Alberta's diverse regions. Explore over 80 indicators including number of businesses, unemployment rates, average rent, CO2 emissions, hospitalization rates, and more. Using the dashboard view for each municipality, you can instantly see the year over year trends for each indicator, and select a dashboard tile to see in-depth information on each indicator with a series of dynamic graphs.

Alberta Economic Dashboard
The dashboard has recently been redesigned and the layout has been modernized, with color-coded categorizations and easier-to-interpret visualizations.  We’ve added half a dozen new indicators as well, reflecting a more complete picture of what’s happening in our economy.

Alberta Export Expansion Package  
Includes up to $20,000 per year in funding support to help cover half the cost of flights, hotels, registration fees and translation of marketing materials to support your company in doing business in another country.
