ONEdmonton is an event that EEDC reserves for addressing the most important opportunities or risks facing the Edmonton region. On Friday, June 28th a ONEdmonton event was held on the topic: “The Impact of Post Secondary Budget Cuts on the Edmonton Economy” with +70 business, political and community leaders participating.
On July 31st, the attached document was sent to Hon. Minister Lukaszuk, Deputy Premier and Minister of Enterprise and Advanced Education, as an output of this session. We have been given 30mins in the Minister’s schedule on October 9th to discuss the issue.
In the meantime, the current state of distrust and disrepair continues to threaten the long-term strength of our local economy – something I believe is completely preventable and absolutely unacceptable.
I encourage all Edmontonians to read the attached 5-page document (http://www.edmonton.com/files/ONEdmonton_Post-Secondary_Output_130725.pdf) and voice their opinion on this blog.
Enjoy your weekend.
