Business Visitation and Warm Welcome

Okotoks Community Growth and Investment team strives to meet with every business in the community – storefront and homebased in order to understand the needs of local businesses as well as gauge the overall economic health of the community. The Town of Okotoks is ensuring that the relationship between business and government is sound in order to improve upon policies and regulations that could help the business community thrive.

Highlighted in this page are some of the meetings that have taken place so far.

Warm Welcome Initiative (Pilot)

This is an informal grand opening for the business where the Town and members from the business community can officially welcome a new business, network, and provide some much needed exposure for that business. Businesses are encouraged to host a separate event, inviting a broader audience (customers, suppliers, officials etc.).

*Note that the Warm Welcome Initiative has commenced as a pilot project, and will evolve as the program matures with more feedback from stakeholders.
