Economic Performance Project Highlights Strong Positive Local Impact

 
 

LETHRBIDGE: A collaborative project between Economic Development Lethbridge and MNP is providing insight into industry performance in Lethbridge.



They conducted a survey of 47 medium to large size companies to learn more about corporate revenues, current and future workforce levels, export locations and areas of investment.



In total, these companies employ 4,500 people, which is 9% of the city's labour force, and generate more than $2-billion in annual revenue. The survey also showed 50% of these companies are expecting to increase their workforce over the next year.



CEO of Economic Development Lethbridge Cheryl Dick says they can use this data moving forward by working with other companies who are interested in Lethbridge. She says "we can show them that agri-food is one of our anchor industries, it's not going anywhere, it's growing significantly. We can talk to them about the depth of manufacturing that happens here and we can show them some of the opportunities in information technology because we have a good handle on what the local market is doing."
