I never have to remind myself of the core of our work, because I am surrounded by it, every day. EDR’s most important role in helping to grow the economy of the Greater Regina Area is acting as a catalyst by building collaborations. Virtually every day I am working with leaders in our city from many sectors and perspectives. Whether they are the entrepreneurial owners of small businesses or senior executives of some of our largest companies, I find them consistently committed to and enthusiastic about taking on the challenges of leading our city into a prosperous future. I am very gratified by the help and support I receive from all of them.
Together we are working to help fashion a bright future for everyone in our city, together we are much smarter and stronger than we are separately, and together we are all dedicated to Thinking BIG!

New Tool for Industrial Development in Regina
EDR has launched a brand-new website tool that brings together tremendously rich information about industrial and commercial land and buildings available in the Greater Regina Area. This new, GIS-enabled page will allow potential investors to get a quick look at potential sites in our city, and provide local businesses with key information about people, and infrastructure assets in their area.
We are very thankful for the assistance and co-operation of the City of Regina and local real estate companies to help build this resource.
