Economic Recovery Team Assembled for Business
Started in 2018, Invest Medicine Hat and Invest Southeast Alberta (ISA) came together as a group of businesses, governments and service agencies who have united to develop a joint economic action plan, share necessary resources, and ensure action is taken to support the region we serve.
Due to the disastrous affects of COVID 19, we have assembled an Economic Recovery Team (ERT) to aid local business. The team will be working together to provide a collaborative approach to best serve business during this time.
One of the first steps is the creation of this webpage that offers current and relevant information on COVID-19. We know in this unprecedented time that businesses need up-to-date and straight-forward information. As a result, we are filtering all the information that is coming in to provide you with streamlined resources. This site will be involving as new information comes in. Check back often to see how our Economic Recovery Team can help you.
