NEW IN 2012!
Dreams Create the Future Website
In the fall of 2011, the Provost Economic Development Committee recognized that many businesses in The Provost Region were experiencing a labour shortage.
Our Committee sees it this way, there is so much opportunity in the region, we don't have enough people currently living here to take advantage of every opportunity!
The Provost Region needs more people!
This site was developed to assist businesses in attracting new employees and others who want to pursue their dreams!
The Committee hopes that these folks will become new residents, new families and new customers who make The Provost Region their new home!
The website is made up for four sections:
We invite you to look for opportunities and information on this site, www.dreamscreatethefuture.ca
