With these difficult times the City of Edmonton is looking for ways they can help businesses and are in negotiations with the Federal and Provincial governments to see what assistance they can offer in the way of assistance through measures such as grants or tax breaks. The City’s website will be updated regularly with new developments and questions can be directed by email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

They suggest talking with your landlord, bank and insurance company before considering temporary closures.

For Health and Safety concerns the Alberta Health Services website will have the most current information.

If I can be of additional service during this time, please contact me.  We’re all in this together.

BPS PROTECTIVE SERVICES K9 INC. is contracted to patrol the NorthWest Industrial Business Association area seven days a week. BPS Protective is easily identified by their black security vehicles, uniformed officers and K-9 partners.

Community Litter Clean-up


The Association, again partnering with the Edmonton Institution for Women, cleaned up litter in the public areas throughout the Association area, gathering more than 120 bags of litter.

Business and property owners are encouraged to do a litter cleanup on their own properties and keep them litter free throughout the year.  The Association will continue to monitor vacant properties for litter.

Watch for the fall 2014 litter clean-up project announcement.

Bus Shelter Program

The  2014 bus shelter program is scheduled to purchase and install three shelters this year. The Association contracts with Edmonton Transit (ETS) to purchase and install bus shelters at our highest usage bus stops.

The Bus Shelter Program is a multi year project designed to assist and enhance public transportation in our area.

Community Parks Program

The Association in partnership with the City of Edmonton has provided a small community park space with picnic benches on 190 Street south of 111 Avenue.  It is located on the edge of the storm pond area.  The project and benches are designed to give employees in the area a restful green space to use for lunches and work breaks. A landscaping project for this site is scheduled for this year.
This is the first of two green spaces planned for the Association area.
