The Regional Economic Development Initiative Association for Northwest Alberta (REDI) formed in 2002 exists to promote and enhance economic growth amongst its member communities and to promote the region as a whole, rather than as individual communities. REDI is geographically located in the far northwest portion of Alberta and is located within Mackenzie County and the Métis settlement of Paddle Prairie. REDI has a population of more than 24,000 residents. The main source of revenue for REDI is from annual membership fees and government partner funding. REDI is registered as a society under The Societies Act of Alberta in the name of Regional Economic Development Initiative Association for Northwestern Alberta. Vision REDI will be the region of choice for current and future generations. We will boast a sustained and diversified economy that creates prosperity and opportunity for all residents. REDI will achieve this vision through a vibrant economy that capitalizes on abundant natural resources, promotes strong business relationships, and supports cooperative partnerships. Mission To promote, support and enhance economic growth and diversification in northwest Alberta through regional cooperation and partnerships.
