Calgary entrepreneur applies lessons learned in sports to the marketplace.
ATB Corporate Financial Services’ Leaders Give Back program allows Alberta’s business leaders to volunteer their time with not-for-profit organizations throughout the province.
The goal of this program is simple: to provide leaders with an opportunity to give back to the communities they live in and care about.
This year, leaders from across the province volunteered at food banks in Edmonton, Calgary, Fort McMurray, Red Deer and Lethbridge.
In late 2015, the Alberta market started to change with the decrease in the price of oil and with changes in our political landscape. This shift was evident, especially in Fort McMurray.
And in May 2016, the wildfire struck Fort McMurray. Many evacuees ended up in Edmonton, and the food banks in that city found themselves overwhelmed and exhausted.
