Who We Are

Central Alberta: Access Prosperity was established in 2011 with a goal to diversify and grow the Central Alberta economy. Access Prosperity was founded by five partner organizations who all share this vision. Our five partners include Red Deer County, the City of Red Deer, the Red Deer and District Chamber of Commerce, Red Deer College and CAEP (Central Alberta Economic Partnership). Access Prosperity is governed by a Board of Directors with members consisting of a representative from each partner organization. Our partners are closely involved in day-to-day business operations.

What We Do

Our small but efficient team is passionate about what we do. We pride ourselves on being very practical in our approach to economic development. We travel internationally seeking out new investment opportunities and following up face-to-face with interested investors. We regularly meet with Central Alberta business owners and operators and support them through growth and expansion. We attend and network at local, national and international trade shows, conferences and events as well as hold various events directed at local business development.
