A recently designed project led by Dennis Whyte, Director of the Plasma Science and Fusion Center at MIT, made ground-breaking advances in fusion energy, altering the realm of carbon-free energy production altogether. This technological advance entails the creation of the strongest fusion magnet in the world which was accomplished for the first time ever on September 5, 2021.
This past week, Shaunavon Town Council adopted the Economic Development Strategy 2021-2025.
The Economic Development Strategy was developed over the past year by EDO Lauren Johnson, in collaboration with the Town, the Economic Development Committee and guidance from MuniMentor Consulting Co. Economic Development was identified as a primary goal in the Town’s Strategic Plan (2017-2022), with a major component of that being the creation of an Economic Development Strategy.
The process of creating the Economic Development Strategy involved a significant input and feedback from the community and local businesses through surveys, one on one conversations and focus group sessions.
This document will serve as a guide to help the Town and Economic Development Committee moving forward to further build and establish our community as a hub for business and tourism. It provides direction, achievable goals and implementable actions so that we are able to track our progress over the next 4 years.
