Collaborate Locally, Compete Globally

The 2019 Edmonton Global Annual Report highlights the work done over the past year as we focused on the 4 priorities from our Strategic Plan including: 

  1. Act as a catalyst for foreign direct investment & trade 
  2. Increase awareness and improve perceptions of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region 
  3. Leverage partnerships to increase success 
  4. Strive for organizational excellence 

This report demonstrates how collaboration has contributed to the success of our organization over the last year. It is important to recognize and celebrate what has been achieved so far. Many people and organizations have contributed to the effort that has helped us get to this point and for that we are grateful.  

Edmonton Global is setting the conditions for long-term success, aligning our voices and efforts, and aggressively driving results. This is where our focus is and must continue to be. 

The purpose of Edmonton Global is to radically transform and grow the economy of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region. It is based upon the belief that the region as a whole is greater than the sum of its parts and that banded together, the Edmonton Metropolitan Region is an absolute powerhouse bursting with potential. 

Meet our Leaders


Today, Edmonton Global launched a video series entitled “Meet our Leaders” highlighting businesses in key sectors that are primed for growth and investment across the Edmonton Metropolitan Region.  

The series shares examples of industry leaders who continue to leverage the unique benefits of doing business in the region. “These videos are part of raising the profile and building awareness of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region among international investors and companies from around the world who are looking to expand,” said Malcolm Bruce, CEO of Edmonton Global. “We all need to share the message that our region is young, educated, and growing. And our Northern location… it’s a strategic advantage. The stories of innovation and success that already exist here are inspiring and will help define the narrative of this great region.”  

The series focuses on leaders in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region who have found success in the following sectors:  

 AI & Tech

Health & Life Sciences

Manufacturing & Advanced Manufacturing

Food & Agriculture

 Energy & Clean Tech

“We want to showcase who we are and what’s happening across the Edmonton Metropolitan Region in a way that causes people to stand up and pay attention to what’s happening right here, right now,” continued Malcolm. “It’s industry leaders like these that are helping define the narrative of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region. We have a compelling story to share with the world and now is the time to come together and advance this message.”
