Edmonton Economic Performance Gets "A-Minus" Grade: Local organizations receive annual achievement awards

Edmonton, Canada | Posted on April 18th, 2012

In his economic update at EEDC's annual lunch today, Gilbertson highlighted the diverse initiatives, underway and planned, to attract people and investment to Alberta's capital city. "Edmonton has a remarkable economic story. In 2011, our economy grew and showed momentum, and we are poised for a bright future," says Gilbertson. "Combine that with our quality of life, we are well on our way to becoming recognized as one of the world's top mid-sized cities."

Aside from Gilbertson's state-of-the-economy address, EEDC recognized Edmonton-area organizations with its annual achievement awards: Quantiam Technologies in the innovation category, Homeward Trust Edmonton for community leadership, and Donovan Creative Communications for recognition category.

Based in the Edmonton Research Park, Quantiam recently built one of Canada's largest private nanotechnology-based manufacturing facilities to provide its proprietary surface coating technology to a global client list, in partnership with the world's largest chemical company. The innovation award recognizes those which have created or changed a product, process or business practice creating the broadest impact.

The business or community leadership award recognizes organizations that best engage our community or industry to actually achieve impactful positive change. Homeward Trust was singled out for leading our community to help the homeless in a caring, holistic and effective manner.

Donovan Creative's work in award-winning campaigns for Edmonton International Airports and Edmonton Public Library increases Edmonton's visibility worldwide. The recognition award celebrates organizations that bring extensive positive awareness and sustained name recognition of Edmonton.

"Shortlisting the submissions was not an easy task," notes Richard Brommeland, EEDC board member and chair of the award selection committee. "The award winners do amazing work, and we are the better for them calling Edmonton home."
