Red Deer has experienced tremendous growth in its population, and is now the third largest urban centre in the province.
Every community in Canada, and around the world, is competing to draw business, draw individuals, draw families, to set up and make this the place they want to be. People’s choices to live in a community are varied – job, quality of life, work/life balance, quality of health care, the list is endless. This requires all of us to work together, across all four pillars, to find balance in all – Economic Prosperity, Social Inclusion, Cultural Participation, Civic Engagement. In doing so, we can co-create a city all people choose to call home.
