The RISE initiative is a five-community (M.D. of Foothills No.31, High River, Okotoks, Turner Valley & Black Diamond) marketing initiative focused on promoting business opportunities in emerging targeted economic sectors in the Foothills area. The initiative includes an investment & site selection guide as well as a website.

The RISE initiative received the Minister's Award for Excellence and Innovation. This award was shared between Community Futures Highwood for their coordination of the initiative and the towns of Black Diamond, High River, Okotoks, Turner Valley and the M.D. of Foothills, whose staff and Councils provided the vision, knowledge, leadership and support resulting in a strong inter-municipal partnership and promotion of the communities.

The investment & site selection guide and the website both contain demographics, statistics and general information on the M.D. of Foothills No.31, as well as the other four partnering municipalities.

Alberta Community Profile

Alberta Finance and Enterprise (AFE) has created a new web-based tool, Albertacommunityprofiles.com to host both basic and enhanced economic profiles for all participating communities in the province of Alberta. This web tool replaces the service that was provided by AlbertaFirst.com, which was discontinued at the end of April, 2011. As with Alberta First, underlying each profile is a robust statistical profile based on comparable, consistent statistical demographic and economic data sourced and maintained by Alberta Finance and Enterprise.
