Small Business

Sturgeon County encourages the entrepreneurial spirit of our residents. From online retailers and professional service providers, to auto repair, trucking and construction companies – our local businesses provide a large assortment of goods and services.

Alberta small businesses contribute more GDP per capita than small businesses anywhere else in the country. In addition to providing good jobs in our hometowns and neighbourhoods, they inject about $100 billion a year into our economy.

Located in Edmonton, Alberta the Business Link facilitates events and provides training, research and advice to small business owners while giving them the ability to learn, network, share ideas, and meet other like-minded entrepreneurs.

Small business is the backbone of any economy, and Sturgeon County is no different. Sturgeon County’s labour force has a large population of self-employed individuals. 19% of the county’s working population were self employed in 2016, which was 6% above the national and provincial rates.

We also have a large number of Home-Based Businesses. Any Sturgeon County business looking to register can do so here. The listing is free of charge, and the local business always retains control over their information; participating companies can edit or update their information at any time. Sturgeon County Economic Development monitors our web traffic very closely, and the online business directory is one of our most-visited pages. The directory is a great way to promote your goods and services!

As part of our mandate, Sturgeon County Economic Development provides Business Retention and Expansion services for our local businesses. If you are an entrepreneur operating a home-based business in the County, make sure to visit the Programs and Supports page to view resources and valuable information on tax credits, grants and other funding programs available to your business.
