Statement from Shane Schreiber, Managing Director/Assistant Deputy Minister of Alberta Emergency Management Agency:
As you may be aware, the Alberta Essential Services List has been published on the Government of Alberta’s website https://www.alberta.ca/essential-services.aspx
The intent of this extensive list is to be generic and permissive – in other words, if a Public Health Order or local authority directive has not specifically listed a business or activity to close or stop, and the business or activity is listed under the Essential Services List, then it could and should continue for the good of the economy and society in general.

RMA Post-Secondary Scholarship

The 2020 application term is now open and closes August 31, 2020

In recognition of the importance of an educated population to the future well-being of rural communities, the Rural Municipalities of Alberta (RMA) established the RMA Post-Secondary Scholarship Program in 1995. The program is designed to encourage rural Albertans to pursue further education, and thereby enhance the ability of these young people to make meaningful contributions to their communities in subsequent years. A scholarship in the amount of $1,000 is presented to one successful applicant from each of RMA’s five districts.

News Release:

The County of Paintearth is announcing the “going live” of a new website designed to feature the Crowfoot Crossing Industrial Park located at the intersection of Highways 36 & 12. CROWFOOTCROSSING.CA will be the main tool that the County can use in pointing developers to the region’s information about traffic, logistics, and benefits of locating in a rural area.

As the County pursues future tenants to purchase lots within the park, this online information repository is aimed at being a one-stop-shop for prospective clients in the heavy transport, plant protein, hospitality, and agricultural services fields.  Combined with extensive vehicle count statistics, CROWFOOTCROSSING.CA is positioning itself where “Haul Roads Lead Here” and directional catch phrases such as “Fort Mac to Fort Worth” and “Red Deer to Saskatoon” and many points in between. 

With nearly 5,000 vehicles a day traversing the intersection of Hwys 12 & 36, the County hopes to bring a focus back to the benefits of rural Alberta, and what we have to offer.  For more information, please visit CROWFOOTCROSSING.CA.
