Planning and Economic Development, Community and Protective Services
Interested in the WC? Get an overview of the economic landscape of Wheatland County. The WC is a diverse region of great transportation corridors into the Calgary area and international access with air.
The Trans Canada Highway, through Wheatland, links the entire country with parallel rail corridors along with road and rail access to the US midwest and Gulf of Mexico through to points north into the Alberta Oil Sands, northern Canada and Alaska.
Built on the foundations of agriculture the WC is a region of rich history and culture. A community or rural culture and the arts Wheatland is a place where roots go beyond what we harvest to how you feel when you visit or plan to call WC home.
Diversity is as infinite as the landscapes with a rich regional involvement in the performing arts with the hamlet of Rosebud and indigenous community with the Siksika Nation as our neighbours.
The WC was created to build cohesion in the complete development process within our team and to market Wheatland County. This is nothing in the traditional sense of promoting our assets to entice investment or visitation.
The WC is our brand foundation. It aligns our purpose, our goals, and our story and that is what we market.
We use traditional and emerging tools for investment and business supports to aid in the success of the economic vitality of Wheatland County. We also want to provide beyond the data why Wheatland is the place to build, to live and to visit. The stories we promote, the experiences we have and the culture we evoke as communities and the region are our asset.
We look at the development process as a cycle of customer service for the greeting through to the permitting. Its in our mantra of "infinite possibilities."
We are open for business...and so much more!
Authenticity is foundation of trust and belief. To build a broad story within authenticity we see sharing the stories of business through a conduit within our brand can add to the value of our brand. In tourism, or visitation, many planning decisions came from reviews of people who plan, host, attend and experience aspects of our community. A major element of the WC brand is storytelling, not only by us, but by our community and our visitors.
This brand is founded on building out the stories and then marketing them out to others. We want to market, not only our "infinite landscapes", but the businesses, communities and those stories. Visitors will be able to get a great sense of their potential experiences through stories.
The more stories we share the more the WC will grow as a brand. We will build and continually publish the book as the WC, and we all take part in writing it.
