Rural Alberta is a diverse place, full of great communities and the center of Alberta’s industrial development. AAMDC members are proud to serve as stewards of the rural environment while promoting economic and community growth from border to border.

The AAMDC received funding from the Rural Alberta Development Fund to develop a video promoting rural Alberta and the industries located there that support the provincial economy. The AAMDC contracted Urban Video to create a video profiling each of the AAMDC’s five districts, which cover all corners of the province, highlighting industries locating within their boundaries.

The video, titled Where it All Starts: Rural Alberta with the AAMDC, follows Doug, a born and raised urban Albertan, as he leaves the big city and learns about rural Alberta for the first time. The video premiered at the Fall 2015 AAMDC Convention, and the AAMDC would like to encourage members and anyone else interested to use the video as they see fit, as it is a great tool to spread the word about the major contributions that rural Alberta makes to the province’s identity, economic development, and environmental stewardship.

The video is available on YouTube, Vimeo, and
