posted on Nov 21 2018

Blackfalds, Alberta (November 21, 2018) – The Town of Blackfalds Economic Development Department and the Economic Development & Tourism Committee have launched a new online tool to support business and investment in Blackfalds. This new website showcases the advantages of doing business in Blackfalds and highlights key information for businesses looking to establish new or expand and grow existing operations in Blackfalds and area.

“This new resource will make it easy for investors to understand current business offerings and opportunities and learn more about Blackfalds business advantages,” says Economic Development Officer Jennifer Hartigh. “Realtors will also benefit by being able to export data on area attractions and business locations and developers can determine areas of growth.”

The new interactive business and investment intelligence tool will help new entrepreneurs and existing businesses access up-to-date local market knowledge including: business climate, industry trends, real estate listings, demographics, infrastructure, competition analysis, and a GIS-based business directory.

Attaining current, accurate data is critical to business planning. Users of this tool can generate customized reports of market information, interactive maps and data, which will give them the detail needed to ask the right questions, analyze data and make informed decisions.

The online tool was developed by Canadian technology firm Localintel and is available at https://blackfalds.ecdev.org and on the Town website at www.blackfalds.com/business where it complements the existing economic development and community web-based marketing and statistical materials.
