Profile is a foundational component of our economic development toolkit,” states
General Manager of Community and Development Services Matthew Boscariol. “It
provides core welcome information for investment, new residents, and visitors
to the region. It is a living document and will be continually refined with the
most up-to-date data and information over time. It is a milestone for the newly
developed Economic Development Division, and it’s compiled content gives the WC
brand, launched late last year, the teeth to show Wheatland is ready to welcome
business and new residents.”
