With the Government of Canada having put forward its framework for the legalization of recreational cannabis, cities across the country will be looking to capitalize on the marijuana economy and its associated jobs, investment, and tax revenue. Edmonton will be no different, and it’s about time we started thinking strategically about how to make our mark in this new industry.
The Corporate division of EEDC aims to provide superior, scalable customer service to EEDC’s divisions through partnerships, innovation, leadership and excellence, as well as pursuing opportunities beneficial to EEDC and the Edmonton region.
This division is comprised of Corporate Services and the Executive Office.
Corporate Services provides Finance, Information Technology (IT), Human Resource (HR), Market Intelligence and Marketing services to all EEDC divisions. The guiding principle for Corporate Services is to drive efficiencies and innovation for all processes and systems within the organization. By building this culture, EEDC can lead by example for others.
The Executive Office is comprised of the President & CEO and two teams: (1) The Strategy and Policy team who is responsible for corporate strategy, stakeholder relations, and public positioning for EEDC and (2) The Administration team who provides support to the CEO’s office, the Board of Directors’ activities, and much of the administrative services for the World Trade Centre offices.
