Core Business Services

Investment Attraction
EDL offers services and support to help interested businesses choose Lethbridge for their new location. Through our Choose Lethbridge business investment profiles, we provide information on the excellent infrastructure, transportation systems and natural resources in the city and the county. The consistent, stable growth of the past 10 years demonstrates the strength of the assets our city and area has to offer. EDL also has partnerships with other economic development organizations to elevate opportunities for the entire region.

Business Retention & Expansion
In 2005, the business community indicated that labour shortages were becoming the biggest obstacle related to their development and expansion. EDL responded by establishing a new priority to help them face the ongoing challenge of finding qualified employees. The ‘You Belong Here’ Labour Force Initiative has been underway since November 2005 and is designed to link potential employees with local employers.

Convention & Event Development
The attraction of major conventions and events helps generate patrons for local retail outlets, customers for area restaurants and, ideally, ongoing advocates when these visitors return home. As a compliment to the tourism attraction done by other organizations, EDL focuses on bringing more business meetings, conferences and conventions to the city and supports others in attracting major events by providing the information they may need to be successful.

Respect & Reputation
The board of Directors and staff of Economic Development Lethbridge established the all-encompassing goal for Lethbridge to be recognized and respected as a vital player in the provincial and national marketplace. Regarded as the foundation for success for all other goals of Economic Development Lethbridge and the community as a whole, it is important to elevate the profile of Lethbridge and southern Alberta, to enhance provincial and federal connections and build on our community pride.

Citizens of Lethbridge place emphasis and value on the high quality of life they experience. Economic Development Lethbridge supports balanced growth of the city as aligned with the values of the community ensuring cultural, social, environmental and learning environments grow along with economic development.
