Owners of Moose and Squirrel Bistro business

“They've been with us from inception to completion, offering advice, and access to community resources such as Tourism Medicine Hat, the development incentive program and marketing resources. Without their support we wouldn’t have been able to survive through COVID. We appreciate their partnership and advice. Thank you for assisting us in being a member of this vibrant, promising future that is the City of Medicine Hat.”
