It is time to be proud of what Edmonton winters have to offer and even a little boastful!
The City of Edmonton became a leader on the winter city world stage as Edmonton City Council endorsed For the Love of Winter: Strategy for Transforming Edmonton into a World-Leading Winter City. The vision is one that celebrates and makes the most of winter. And given winter’s inevitability, this just makes sense.
For the Love of Winter was developed by Edmontonians, for Edmontonians. A diverse group of volunteers, called the WinterCity Think Tank, consulted with ordinary and extraordinary Edmontonians, drawing ideas from multiple communities and organizations on what would make them fall in love with winter in Edmonton. The Strategy has 10 goals which fall under four pillars:
Then a new WinterCity Advisory Council, a group of volunteer community members and City employees, was formed to guide the development of an Implementation Plan: a detailed map for transforming Edmonton into a more inviting, vibrant and prosperous place for residents, business, industry and tourists throughout the winter months, while still being true to our heritage and our connection to nature and the environment.
We are northern and we are proud! We are also well on our way to realizing all the potential that our winters offer.
