The Big Lakes County Business Supports Program helps any company located in the the Big Lakes County - High Prairie - Swan Hills area start up, tune up, and grow. The Big Lakes County Economic Development Authority designed the program using information from a 2018 local business survey and sector tours held from 2016-2018. The program includes advisory services to navigate available business resources, tailored research, business workshops, a business resources center, and an online business directory and resources hub. All of our services, with the exception of some workshops, are free.
