Edmonton Made Launch


September 20, 2016

The Edmonton Made pilot program is run by the City of Edmonton and Make Something Edmonton with a goal to help consumers identify and support small businesses in their area.

Yesterday (September 19, 2016), Edmonton City Councillor, Michael Oshry, cut the ribbon for the inaugural launch of Edmonton Made Day. The day celebrates the entrepreneurial efforts of local businesses and aims to provide a central resource for local business supports.

The Edmonton Made pilot program, run by the City of Edmonton and our friends at Make Something Edmonton, is an opportunity for businesses and organizations to celebrate their Edmontonian roots and connect with other local entrepreneurs. For consumers, the Edmonton Made network is a way to identify and support the small businesses that are diversifying and growing our economy.
