Economic Development Board
Over the next two years, Sturgeon County’s Economic Development Board will play an important role in advising Council on business-related issues in the county, including discussing supports for small and medium-sized businesses, diversification, development, and the upcoming commercial development analysis for Sturgeon County.
The board meets four times per year, and members are paid for their time at meetings. Serving on the board is a great way to learn more about economic development in the County and the role of boards and committees in supporting Council decisions. Review the Economic Development Board Terms of Reference for more information.
