COVID-19 Small Business Impact Survey - Over the coming weeks, local consulting and training firm Ballad Group will engage with business owners across the Yellowhead East and Lesser Slave Lake regions in order to:

  • Explore employer/employee needs and workforce impacts due to COVID-19; and
  • Identify immediate and future supports and assistance for the business community and labour market.

Due to current public health restrictions, engagement with businesses is set to begin immediately via Zoom and telephone calls, with businesses in the Community Futures Yellowhead East and Community Futures Lesser Slave Lake regions being asked to share their current challenges related to the pandemic.

Municipal Leaders Launch COVID-19 Media Campaign

In the wake of Alberta's recent declaration of a State of Public Health Emergency due to COVID-19, Lac Ste. Anne County Council is working with the autonomous towns and summer villages within its borders to reinforce the importance of universal public compliance with the heightened provincial restrictions.

Bend the Curve, the joint municipal media campaign reminds community members of the power they possess to bend the curve downward on COVID-19 numbers. It also sends a message of gratitude to locals who already support the greater social good by heeding the public health restrictions.

Awareness of this messaging is being supported via web and social media channels of the County and partner municipalities including Mayerthorpe, Onoway and Alberta Beach. A digital ad campaign has also been launched in an effort to reach every household in the region during the holiday season.

An informational microsite has been launched by the partner municipalities at The site breaks down the provincial regulations in simple terms, and provides some sobering local numbers to drive home the importance of heeding the health restrictions. It also leverages important regional data and resources, including daily updates from Alberta's Chief Medical Officer Dr. Deena Hinshaw.
