Wood Buffalo Economic Development

Support to Small Business Programs

Through the various programs, services, conversations and surveys completed with stakeholders and entrepreneurs following the 2016 Horse River Wildfire Wood Buffalo Economic Development identified certain challenges that continued to be facing the business community and put forward a proposal the Canadian Red Cross to fund three key programs to address these needs and that can provide continued intermediate business recovery support.

The Canadian Red Cross has approved the funding request to support the following three programs:

  1. Business Coaching Program
  2. Keyano College Voucher Program
  3. Group Learning Events
