Your City, Your Business

As part of Councils 2017-2021 Strategic Plan, one of the eight high strategic priorities included public engagement, ensuring residents have access to information about City government activity. In 2018 an Economic Development Strategic Plan was developed through considerations of Council's five strategic pillars Community Sustainability, Governance Culture, Social, Environment and most notably, Economy.

The Economy pillar as stated in Council's Strategic Plan means achieving economic vitality, and growth and development that simultaneously improves quality of life and environment. It includes employment, income levels and health, quality and diversity of employers, business and non-profit organizations.

As the City of Lloydminster's Economic Development department's mission, a number of public engagement opportunities are hosted each year to support the flow of information between our local businesses/non-profit organizations and the City.

Mission: Actively deliver timely and effective information and services to attract, secure and retain business investment.
