Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI)
The Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI) Northwest Alberta formed in 2002 exists to promote and enhance economic growth amongst its member communities and to promote the region as a whole, rather than as individual communities.
REDI is geographically located in the far northwest portion of Alberta and is located within Mackenzie County and the Métis settlement of Paddle Prairie.
REDI has a population of more than 24,000 residents. The main source of revenue for REDI is from annual membership fees and government partner funding.
