April 1st saw the City of St. Albert roll out a vibrant campaign complete with colourful buttons and a strong message: "Show Us What You Got" in St. Albert. The social media-based movement promotes local businesses, and encourages residents to explore what St. Albert has to offer. Shoppers have already been sharing their local finds on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook using the hashtag #igotithere.
The Show Us What You Got campaign gives residents the opportunity to get out in the community, and discover items and services they may not have been aware were available in St. Albert. As a satellite city, residents often feel compelled to make the trip across the Henday to shop for items. We often don't realize the clothing, shoes, specialty groceries, and services on our lists are more readily available in a shop closer to home.
Purchasing from a local shop comes with a variety of benefits. We save time, gas, and often money by sourcing products and services nearby. Real expertise and friendly service are almost a guarantee, and it's often possible to try products out before purchasing.
Of course, this campaign doesn't only benefit shoppers. In addition to added convenience and quality for customers, increased local shopping and spending has some serious benefits for local businesses, and the entire community.
Show Us What You Got means:
Dawn Fedorvich, Manager of Business Retention and Expansion with the City, says: "research shows that entrepreneurs and skilled workers are more likely to invest and settle in a community that preserves and supports independent and distinct businesses." In other words, shopping locally fosters further growth for businesses, in a cycle of economics that keeps investment within our city limits.
On top of all these great built-in incentives, the Show Us What You Got campaign has a social media contest with the chance to win free local shopping from a business of your choice. Every photo of your local purchase with the hashtag #igotithere on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, will earn you an entry.
NABI wants to help connect local shoppers with local businesses at every opportunity. Our tenants offer a range of services you can explore and share. To find out what you can find at NABI, check out our list of our current tenants click here.
Share your local finds with us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, and pick up an #igotithere pin and more information from our front desks.
Promotional buttons for each of the categories have been made and businesses are encouraged to request a box of pins for their business. Questions contact Dawn Fedorvich at 780-459-1743 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The holiday season is in full swing. Offices are decorated, season’s greetings are being shared and companies are hosting their annual Christmas parties. However, in times of economic struggle, some business owners may not fully recognize the value of hosting a Christmas party.
Annual celebrations influence corporate culture. Christmas parties become ingrained in a team’s culture as events that encourage staff to shed work stresses and engage with each other in a fun environment. Also, getting employees into the holiday spirit lightens their mood and boosts morale.
Christmas parties wrap up the year in a positive setting and are an excellent way to say “thank you” to staff for their hard work and dedication. Hosting annual festivities is one way of showing your team that they’re valued, which is a worthwhile investment.
Corporate Christmas parties don’t have to be overly lavish; they simply need to be cheerful and relaxed. It’s a time to say “Happy Holidays,” have informal conversations and show gratitude to a group of diligent individuals. They’re events team members look forward to, especially if companies put the effort into making them enjoyable and memorable.
Christmas parties offer a relaxing end to the current year and refreshing start to the New Year. So recognize the importance of these celebrations and maintain their presence within your company.
If you haven’t already RSVP’d to NABI’s Christmas Potluck Party, you’re invited to join us! View our event page for more details.

A St. Albert-based company will be taking its filter technology global this month as it takes part in an international climate change conference.
David Dooley of Baleen International told the Gazette recently that his company was one of a handful of Canadian firms invited to speak at the upcoming COP22 conference in Marrakech, Morocco.
The Conference of the Parties is an annual meeting of world leaders under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, said Erin Flanagan, federal policy director with the Pembina Institute and member of the Canadian contingent at the meeting. This is the 22nd such meeting.
COP21 in Paris set a worldwide goal of keeping climate warming to less than 2 C, Flanagan explained. COP22 will be about how to reach that goal.
“Every country has to do more sooner,” she said, including Canada.
Baleen International is an Australian company with a headquarters in St. Albert that produces industrial water filtration devices.
Dooley, the company’s president, said his staffers will present on the importance of wastewater treatment during a forum on oceans at the conference.
The world’s oceans absorb about a third of all greenhouse gas emissions, yet are under threat from numerous forms of pollution, Dooley said. Some of those pollutants, such as microplastics, can’t be stopped by conventional treatment systems.
“We have to treat (wastewater) like an asset,” he said.
Dooley said nations could use technologies such as those made by his company to mine wastewater for resources, improving water health and reducing emissions.
It’s definitely exciting for a Canadian firm to be recognized at a conference like this, Flanagan said.
“Climate change and policy actions on climate change in Canada is about global opportunities,” she said, and opens space for Canadian firms in developing markets.
The conference runs from Nov. 7 to 18.
I have a diploma in Environmental Technology from NAIT and have spent the last 17 years of my career (14 with one company) in consulting working for the Corporate Giants of Oil and Gas. I started my career with a small family-owned business and as we grew, we were sold twice (to a larger company each time). As time went on, I began to miss the individual contact you get from a small business and I didn’t find myself enjoying the direction my career was heading as I once did. When the price of oil dropped, I took that as a sign and decided on a career change. Nervous and unsure, I evaluated what I enjoyed most about my previous career and what I would like to do going forward. Dealing with people, troubleshooting and coordinating moved to the top of my list. So…here I am!
I enjoy working with small businesses, entrepreneurs and professionals from all disciplines. With many of my skills interchangeable, the primary ones are Customer Focus with a Can-Do attitude and I most definitely bring that with me.
In my personal time I co-raise two highly energetic boys (ages 5 and 8). They are a handful and definitely keep me busy. When they aren’t with me, you will often find me competing at dog shows with my Golden Retriever. Whether it is Agility, Rally, Obedience or the infamous Conformation Ring, training with him over the past 11 years has been my hobby and most definitely a pleasure.
Please stop by and say hello, I would love to answer any and all questions that you have, whether it be about a career change yourself and starting a new business, cleaning stains off kids shirts or what brush to use on a long coated dog. If I don’t have the answer, I promise you that I will get it for you.
