Economic Development

We are moving Hinton’s economy forward… together.

Hinton Regional Economic Development Coalition

The Hinton Chamber has tried a couple of models to support Economic Development in our community. The Hinton Regional Economic Development Coalition (HREDC) is a coalition of the Town of Hinton, The Hinton & District Chamber of Commerce and citizens from the community. In addition, the group is supported by Alberta Labour and Community Futures.

HREDC is charged with formulating a strategic plan and form some high-level goals for the community.  For more information on HREDC, or how to get involved go to

In economics, hope and faith coexist with great scientific pretension and also a deep desire for respectability.
