Edomonton’s Downtown Core

The saying, “So goes your downtown, so goes your city.” came from the awareness that downtowns are the economic engines of a city. They are the centres in which our social connections generate new ideas, innovations and ventures. Downtowns are the heart of a city.

The Problem

Without a thriving downtown, and its enormous impact to the entire region and province, we are in for years of economic hardships and we risk losing the incredible gains we’ve made in developing our city core.

 

The Policy

Enable the following to catalyze business, support an innovation ecosystem, simplify and accelerate market-driven development, and encourage more people to visit and stay downtown.

  • Business Made Simple
  • Enabling Technology
  • Pathways that Work to Connect
  • Transportation Serves the Core
  • Integrated Partnerships for Impact

 

The Outcome

A vibrant, thriving business district in the heart of our city, one that Edmontonians are proud of. Our city’s streamlined permitting and licensing services enable entrepreneurs to set-up and grow their businesses in our city’s core.
