Drumheller has been named one of the top 10 communities to do business in Alberta.
The honour was bestowed by Alberta Venture Magazine and was announced June 1. Drumheller also made the list of most affordable communities in Alberta.
“In making selections for Alberta Venture’s 2010 Best Communities for Business, we found an increased focus on factors beyond taxes, regulations and land availability. There is growing recognition that social factors, such as proximity to post-secondary institutions, recreational opportunities and lifestyle amenities are important too. The promise of a good job, lower taxes and a business-friendly municipality needs to strike a balance with where people want to invest their lives and families. Businesses need assurance that a community provides a stable climate for their investments,” said the magazine’s web site.
The selection of Drumheller was made from 30 communities that responded to Alberta Venture’s 2010 Best Communities for Business survey.
