Funding coming for Business Resource Centre

There’s good news for the Back to Business Resource Centre in Fort McMurray.

The Centre was opened just after re-entry began to aid business owners and workers through the challenges of recovery.

The province today announced funding for the Centre and business recovery expos to the tune of $750,000.

The funding is one of the government’s efforts to create jobs, attract investment, and diversify local economies as┬ápart of the Alberta Jobs Plan.

Through the new Community and Regional Economic Support program, communities in every corner of the province will have access to $30 million over two years.

The money will help pay for locally developed projects that promote long-term economic growth and diversification, particularly projects that communities and municipalities could not necessarily fund on their own.

The Business and Resource Centre acts as a one-stop shop for businesses to access government, business planning and office resources assisting with their return to operations.
