The historical connections between Scotland and Canada are well-documented. Against this backdrop, the Alberta Scottish Business Association was formed with a view to building and strengthening ties and connections between businesses and business professionals located or interested in Alberta who enjoy an economic, educational or historical relationship with Scotland.
The association has a number of agreed objectives that ensure the focus and purpose of the group remains clear to those involved and those interested in becoming involved.
- To facilitate, on an informal basis, the meeting, discussing and exchanging of ideas and information by individuals and businesses, with an identifiable Scottish interest, in Alberta.
- To represent, express and give effect to the views arising out of the above discussions if those views are deemed to affect the economic interests of the group or influence business ties between Alberta and Scotland.
- To promote the development of commerce and raise awareness of business opportunities between Alberta and Scotland.
