In the News


Mayor Lindop was busy last week as VDL Groep's Corporate Vice President for North America, Simon Bambach, took his time to join him along with other delegates and representatives from our regional neighbours on a three-day tour of our region in search of opportunity to build their business into Alberta.

VDL Groep is an international industrial and manufacturing company that makes its home in the Netherlands. Their interest in Alberta stems from the lands ability to support the growth of hemp, a major product that VDL uses in the development of their products. This tour was largely thanks to a trade mission to the Netherlands that Mayor Lindop, along with several other regional delegates and representatives attended in May of 2016.

As of 2011, Alberta was responsible for 32 per cent of hemp production in Canada and our hope is that with VDL's investment in our region, this will continue to grow.
