Edmonton has huge potential. More than 90 per cent of our businesses are small and medium enterprises with the ingenuity and agility to solve problems in new ways. They are the job creators of our region.
We boast a wealth of globally-leading post-secondary institutions, making this city an academic powerhouse. With nearly 10 per cent of our population taking advantage of these institutions to ready themselves to fill the jobs of the future, we are actively creating some of the world’s best talent.
Unlocking our potential for today’s and future generations will take smart, deliberate decisions. As mayor, I will catalyze and leverage data about our city and utilise innovative technology to do things better — to create an Edmonton that works and moves forward faster. We are a city of starters and learners, and together, we can ignite our future economy.
We are a city worth investing in and here’s how we’ll get there:
We are a Startup City and our city’s brand should reflect the incredible talent we have here. We have some of the best locally created restaurants, festivals, tech ventures and family-owned businesses. If you are a builder, doer, entrepreneur, maker —this is the city you want to be in.
