About the Southern Alberta Business Development Agency
Serving Southern Alberta Communities of Opportunities by matching business with locations where synergies are created and new jobs result.
While the importance of a healthy economy cannot be overstated, a gap exists between the DESIRE and the ABILITY to make positive economic changes that benefit the micro-economies of urban and rural jurisdictions.
Major centres such as Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and elsewhere have substantial local economies which provide enormous advantages compared to smaller cities and towns across the province.
SABDA was conceived as a strategy to level the playing field and through the power of aggregation help to close the competitive gap with those mega-cities.
Building on our strength in numbers, it is possible for small, scattered locations to punch above their weight and build on their competitive economic advantages.
Many large corporations from across North America and around the world are looking for niche communities where they can sustainably set up shop.
Clean air, clean water, beautiful geography, minimal crime, highly educated but under-employed populations, affordable real estate and proximity to larger centres OR transportation roots are the ingredients smart corporations seek when planning their next grow stages.
Partnering with SABDA helps communities of all sizes to get noticed on the world stage in a positive way on the world stage. Let us do the heavy lifting in order to help your community realize all of its potential successes.
Make SABDA your communities’ welcome mat to the world of opportunities.
