Fort Saskatchewan got a little boost from the provincial government.
Last week, Jessica Littlewood was on hand to deliver a $65,000 cheque to mayor Gale Katchur and the City of Fort Saskatchewan.
The grant will be used specifically to carry out an investor-specific website later this year. It will be tailored to potential investors and used to promote opportunities in the Fort.
The money comes as a Community and Regional Economic Support (CARES) grant that will be used for increasing interest in the local economy.
"The (CARES) program was set up for rural municipalities that are outside of the big urbans to help them create more sustainable communities when it comes to economic development," said Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville MLA Jessica Littlewood. "Lots of people say Fort Saskatchewan needs more business to make sure they're more sustainable."
Earlier this year, the Fort's Economic Development Department presented an Investment Attraction Strategy.
