In response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses and the economy, Economic Developers Alberta (EDA) has once again taken the lead in providing tools and resources to equip community leaders to respond to and recover from the impact this event is creating.

COVID-19 Pandemic 

In January 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the novel coronavirus a global health emergency. The virus, known as COVID-19, was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.

Then, on March 11, 2020, the WHO assessed COVID-19 as a pandemic. 

Just like our response to the 2013 Southern Alberta Flood, and the 2016 For McMurray Wildfires, in response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic,  EDA is taking the lead in providing ideas, tools and resources to accelerate business and economic recovery.

Beyond COVID Webinar Series: Business & Economic Recovery

Since March, we have been holding a series of FREE virtual seminars designed to connect us with community leaders from Alberta, across Canada and around the world. These weekly webinars provide information to help accelerate business and economic recovery. 

As of May 20, we have shifted our focus slightly. These "Beyond COVID" webinars will profile various topics and/or industries; in particular, where the opportunities are post-COVID. We are pleased to be hosting these with AUMA. We have taken a pause on these webinars but you can see recordings of past webinars by visiting the blog at the bottom of this page.

EDA's national toolkit is designed to help Canadian communities, emergency personnel and elected officials as they continue to prepare for, respond to, and recover from various types of natural, manmade and technological disasters.
