Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association

Alberta's Industrial Heartland (AIHA), home to a globally recognized oil and petrochemical processing cluster, is guided by a non-profit association of municipalities dedicated toward sustainable eco-industrial development.

  • Current member municipalities include City of Edmonton, City of Fort Saskatchewan, Lamont County, Strathcona County and Sturgeon County.
  • AIHA promotes responsible development within the region – and ensures the region is ready for development in its infrastructure, services and land use zoning principles.
  • AIHA recognizes that activities in the area can have a major impact on neighbouring communities and can affect their service delivery.

Port Alberta

Port Alberta’s vision is to connect world-class transportation, logistics and supply chain intelligence to link the Alberta economy to the world.

  • Port Alberta is an industry-led association fostering transportation and logistics linkages to simplify the supply chain and to promote economic diversity and value added for Alberta.
  • The organization seeks to improve the global reach of local businesses, advocates for policy, regulatory and infrastructure priorities, and facilitates innovative solutions that create competitive advantages for industry in the Greater Edmonton Area.
