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.
