Big Support for Edmonton Businesses
I always take pride in supporting small and local business owners whenever I can. Not only are these types of businesses essential to Edmonton's economy, they are also fundamental to the livelihood of the employees working there.
As the Chairman and Executive Director of the Can Man Dan Foundation, a local non-profit organization dedicated to helping those in need within our city, I made it our goal in 2020 to invest as much as possible within city limits. Whether we bought product and resources directly from, or partnered with, a local business to provide vital services, we did our best to keep money in our community.
I'm proud to announce the Can Man Dan Foundation generated $485,503.83 for Edmonton-based businesses in 2020.
In a day and age when we're encouraged to order online or directly from the supplier, I believe in supporting and building our local economy!
