The City of Medicine Hat’s economic development office has a new name – Medicine Hat Economic Development – the department formerly known as “Invest Medicine Hat” announced Thursday.

Last spring city council approved a plan by city manager Ann Mitchell to rehire senior staff and develop a new economic development plan after the office saw a number of departures in early 2022.

Director Selena McLean-Moore was hired in June, and a post on the city website states the office is now fully staffed and “focused” on four pillars in its mandate.

They are workforce development, business development, investment attraction and investment growth and readiness.

The department is developing a regional economic development plan with other municipalities in southeast Alberta, as well as developing an immigration attractive strategy known as the rural renewal stream.
