Using updated branding, Invest Stony Plain showcases local investment opportunities and promotes the evolution of the community’s position in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region.

As a part of Stony Plain’s 2022 – 2025 Strategic Plan, Town Council has committed to growing the municipality’s population from nearly 20,000 to 30,000 in an effort to reap the benefits growth will provide current and future residents, including increased quality of life and economic and employment opportunities.

“Growing a population by one-third requires a considerable shift in how people think and relate to Stony Plain. Invest Stony Plain is our way of initializing that shift. It sparks the creative energy required to clean the slate and look at the future through a new lens. The new website ensures critical information is readily available for prospective businesses making investment decisions,” said Michelle Levasseur, Economic Development Officer, Town of Stony Plain.

To reach this population goal, the Town is currently working on a Highway Development Strategy to accelerate development along Highways 16A and 628. Work also continues on a Broadband Strategy to fill existing service gaps and improve Stony Plain’s business opportunities. Further, funds have been committed in 2023 to complete a new Economic Development Strategy supporting the upward growth of Stony Plain’s business ecosystem.
