The History of the Alberta Enterprise Group
In 2007 a group of business leaders banded together to create an ambitious new business advocacy organization. The mandate of the group was to make Alberta a better place to live and do business, thereby creating long-term and unprecedented prosperity for every Albertan.
Over the years, both collectively and as individual members of AEG, we’ve succeeded in sharing Alberta’s story with the world. We effectively communicate the benefits of doing business in our province, we positively inform the public and policy makers on complex and challenging issues facing the province and the country, and we create real change as the community requires.
AEG members employ over 100,000 Albertans and generate billions in economic activity each year, stimulating and guiding the business climate to better serve us all.
