The four-year municipal budget deliberations are in front of us, and this budget is unlike any other.
What's at stake?
Over the next five weeks, Edmonton's Council will debate spending priorities that will no doubt have a huge impact on property taxes and business investments. How is this going to affect you? The tax increase over the next 4 years starts at 15.6% and the total spending between operating and capital is over $20 billion.
Join Edmonton’s member driven business organizations for a conversation on the impact of this budget, how to get involved and why your voice matters this year, more than ever before.
On January 28, Raise your glass in a toast to an accomplished year at the Chamber Ball 2023, presented by Servus Credit Union. This signature event of the season will feature an evening of fine dining, show-stopping live entertainment and unparalleled networking and festivities.
What has been your biggest challenge in business, and how did you overcome it?
The self-employed mindset is along the lines of “I don’t have to work this morning if I don’t want to,” and “I can just use the business account for this.” On the other hand, thinking as an entrepreneur and business owner sounds more like “I get to work towards growing my business today,” and “I’ll pay myself a little less this month to invest into the business.”
Edmonton’s Trade Accelerator Program (TAP) Fall cohort is now complete after our final day of mentorship. This was the largest cohort to date, with an incredible group of companies and mentors participating over the past 5 weeks.
During the hybrid cohort, TAP companies connected with our industry and trade experts to take advantage of one-on-one mentorship opportunities and valuable presentations. Companies developed their export plans and are ready to look for new opportunities to expand their operations globally with the tools, resources and networks gained from TAP.
A sincere thank you to each of our sponsors, partners and entrepreneurs who dedicated their time to these valuable learning opportunities.
