Support Local Alberta: Energy and Construction

The COVID-19 pandemic has small and medium-sized businesses requesting Albertans to invest in their communities by purchasing goods and services from locally-owned businesses. To date, the local movement has focused mostly on the retail, hospitality, and food and beverage industries, but there should be a focus on construction and energy. Ergo, supporting local includes B2B.

3 Ways to Support Local in Your Organization

  1. Vendor Audit – Audit current vendors and note which are local and which are not local. This is the first step to find immediate opportunities that keep dollars in the province.
  2. ‘Local-First’ Culture – Integrate a ‘local-first’ strategy into business operations. When selecting a vendor, ensure that employees look for businesses in the area first.
  3. Local Promotion – Promoting local vendors, or vice versa, solidifies an organization’s commitment to the prosperity of their communities. This is key to not only generating more economic return in the province, but also enhances current business relationships.
