Survey Shows Lethbridge Open to Foreign Workers and Investment

A recent survey of Lethbridge residents shows that accepting foreign workers and foreign investment is considered important to the long-term stability of the local economy. The study, sponsored by Economic Development Lethbridge, shows that a significant majority of Lethbridge residents (94.9%) believe that foreign investment is important to the Canadian economy and 87.3% of residents believe that Lethbridge can benefit from foreign investment as well.

“These results show that, as we continue to look at investment attraction and business retention strategies for Lethbridge, we can confidently also consider those that include a foreign element. Further, this information supports long-term solutions to workforce challenges and a strategy that includes attracting foreign workers,” states Cheryl Dick, CEO of EDL.
