    This year’s agenda included discussion on topics that have been brought up during past ASB Conferences as resolutions and made some new resolutions relevant to current concerns.  The conference had presenters from various organizations. Presenters included MD of Greenview, Kevin Keller; Manager, Economic Development, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, Doug Macaulay; Manager, Agriculture Service Board Unit; Kathrine Altman, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry-EMS Emergency Management Officer; Brad Andres, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry Emergency Management Section (Director); Laura Stewart, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry Specialist; Brice Daly, Alberta Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) Field Officer and Karen Wickerson, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry Rat and Pest Program Specialist providing updates on information for their respective fields of work.  Conference speakers Darrell Chambers with Bayer Crop Science, Jordan Jensen with the Farm Safety Centre, and Nicole Kimmel (Aquatic Invasive Species Specialist) with Alberta Environment and Parks presented various topics impacting the agriculture industry.

    “Greenview remains dedicated to supporting its agricultural producers, and the Regional ASB Conference is a step in making positive change for the industry,” commented Dale Smith. “A lot of hard work and dedication goes into hosting this conference every year, and we would like to thank all of our attendees for their understanding while we worked within the COVID-19 restrictions in presenting this conference.”

    MEDIA RELEASE: MD of Greenview Hires Executive Director to Lead Advancement of Industrial Land Development

    MEDIA RELEASE: MD of Greenview Hires Executive Director to Lead Advancement of Industrial Land Development

    October 28, 2020
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    MD of Greenview Hires Executive Director to Lead Advancement of Industrial Land Development

    The Municipal District of Greenview is pleased to announce the addition of Kyle Reiling as the Executive Director, Greenview Industrial Development.

    Kyle’s economic development experience spans 20 years, with a central focus on industrial growth. His comprehensive knowledge of industrial developments in Alberta was a key factor in this move. Specifically, his past roles and activities include Manager of Industrial Development for Strathcona County, Manager of Economic Development and Tourism at Sturgeon County, Manager of Transportation and Logistics for the City of Calgary, Vice President of Landrex Developments and Director of Industrial Development at WSP.

    During his time at the municipal level, Kyle worked on business expansion and attraction projects, including Shell Scotford, Aux Sable, North West Redwater Partnership, and the IPPl Petrochemical Complex. Previous committee experience includes terms representing the combined Alberta Industrial Heartland Association and Province of Alberta Linear Infrastructure Corridor Committee. Kyle was also a Member of the Provincial-led Chemical Cluster Strategy Team working with the AIHA and the Province of Alberta.

    “Greenview is pleased to have Kyle join our organization,” said Reeve Dale Smith. “We are confident he will move the industrial project formerly known as TMIP forward. The development of a large-scale Eco-Industrial zone is an important stage for expansion within Greenview, as the land presents a unique opportunity to establish additional value-added growth that will benefit the region and the Province of Alberta.”

    While the area is already home to many respected companies, including CNRL, Seven Generations and Weyerheuser, Greenview is determined to increase probability, attracting more complementary companies attracted by this endeavour’s immeasurable potential. Located just south of Grande Prairie, the Greenview Industrial Development will comprise approximately 15,000 acres of industrial zoned land with rail access. Reiling has in mind a coordinated business attraction approach focused on strong value chains of methane, ethane and urea development.

    “The reality that this area sits on the largest natural gas deposit in North America sets it apart and gives Greenview considerable advantage. With over 400 trillion cubic feet of proven marketable natural gas and 14 million barrels of marketable natural gas liquids, this formation is also one of the world’s largest known gas resources. In addition, an approved Area Structure Plan will speed up the approval process, and the future twinning of Highway 40 multiplies access to markets. This is of considerable value when companies are deciding on making significant investments, such as these facilities. They are comparing the industrial development potential here compared to others, not just in Canada but also in the world. With limited options to export feedstock, it is critical that we further advance value-added development in the Province of Alberta, and this industrial development will support this goal. This is an exciting initiative,” remarked Reiling.

    For further information regarding this development, please contact Kyle Reiling at kyle.reiling@mdgreenview.ab.ca.

    The 2020-2021 Alberta Influenza Immunization program is now available

    The 2020-2021 Alberta Influenza Immunization program is now available

    As we continue to work together on Alberta’s response to COVID-19, immunization is more important than ever, both to protect ourselves and our loved ones, and also to reduce the burden of additional illness in our communities.  As you may already be hearing, this year’s immunization options have changed.

    All Albertans, six months of age and older, are still eligible to be immunized, free of charge; however, this year, Alberta Health Services (AHS) is working with pharmacists and physicians to offer immunization to different age groups and demographics.  The easiest way for most Albertans to get immunized is to call a local pharmacy or doctor’s office. 

    AHS clinics are offering influenza immunization to those under five years of age and their immediate families or household members, only. Appointments are required for AHS clinics, and can easily be booked online at https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/influenza/influenza.aspx , or by calling 811. 

    Individuals who do not have a provincial health care number, or who live in a community where there are no other immunizing health care providers aside from AHS, can call 811 to book an immunization through AHS.

    No community will be without the protection of influenza immunization.  Alberta Health Services is here to support you, your friends, family, colleagues and neighbours in getting immunized.

    Masking and physical distancing practices continue to be in place at all immunization locations. We remind all Albertans: please don’t attend an immunization appointment if you are feeling unwell. If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 please isolate at home and visit ahs.ca/covid to complete the AHS online self-assessment and book a test for COVID-19 if recommended.
