No one can deny Mountain Park businesses have had a challenging year. Over the last several months, AMPPE has been working hard to ensure that all levels of government are aware of and value the contributions Mountain Park businesses make both to our economy and to the health and well-being of Canadians.
AMPPE has been meeting with with officials, sending letters, preparing submissions, appearing before committees and sitting on panels and task forces---and we know that governments have heard us.
The announcement of the partnership between the the Government of Alberta and the Canada Infrastructure Bank to study the feasibility of a rail link between Calgary airport and Banff, to the pilot project between the federal government and the province to pilot rapid COVID tests and especially that government officials now call us first to discuss policy ideas show that our efforts are working.
There is much more work to do as governments plan for recovery. It is essential that AMPPE's voice is strong the US election, a spring federal election, the municipal election in Banff and the resumption of Park Management planning could all impact policies that impact AMPPE members.
We look forward to sharing what AMPPE has accomplished over that last and what we are planning in the future during the NOVEMBER 13 AGM. The AGM will also offer an opportunity for you to bring issues and potential opportunities forward.
As it is more important than ever to present our many voices as one, I encourage you to tune in by Zoom to learn, share and get involved. AGM details are listed below.
