Town of Canmore

Digital Economy Program

The Town of Canmore is pleased to be a part of Alberta’s new Digital Economy Program: providing free digital support for your small business.

This FREE program is funded by the Government of Alberta in conjunction with Business Link and Digital Main Street. The program will be delivered by Community Futures Centre West in partnership with local municipalities – City of Airdrie, Town of Canmore, Town of Cochrane, Town of Crossfield, Kananaskis Improvement District, and Rocky View County.

Connections and Resources

Throughout the project, training opportunities will be provided by Business Link.
