Chamber celebrates 125th anniversary
On March 17th the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce will celebrate its 125th anniversary.
In 1894 the Red Deer Board of Trade was established and set its first goal to establish a municipal government for the area. By 1901 Red Deer was incorporated as a town. As time went on the Board of Trade become more heavily involved in improving Red Deer’s position and eventually became involved in national issues. By 1953 the Board of Trade had experienced such growth that a decision was made to officially change its name to the Red Deer Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber plans to spend a good part of 2019 promoting their roots in the community and historical significance at their events and through marketing efforts. “We have several things planned this year that tie in to our 125 year anniversary. Including our 125 year brand that is a replicating the original Welcome to Red Deer sign from the 1960s. The Chamber has been a pillar in the community and instrumental in helping shape Red Deer into the vibrant city it is today” says Rick More, CEO, Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber invites their members to join them on March 15th from 2-4pm at their open house to kick off the celebrations. Members and the public can watch for their communications throughout the year and can follow them on social media through their Facebook: www.fb.com/RedDeerChamber and Twitter: @reddeerchamber
The Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce is a collaborative leader in building a globally significant region and a vibrant community.

Scott Subaru: Canada’s most environmentally friendly car dealership has opened in Red Deer
You should visit Scott Subaru Passive House even if you’re not in the market for a new ride
From Scott Subaru: IT’S HAPPENED!
We have moved into our new eco-friendly / energy efficient Passive House dealership and man are we happy! Although we are still in our ‘settling in’ process, we welcome you to come on down, have a nice hot beverage, and see just how big and beautiful this place is. We will be setting up a date for the Grand Opening once we have all our eggs in a cozy basket, so stay tuned for more information on that soon!
The Scott Subaru Passive House is inspired by our partner, Subaru of Indiana, the automotive manufacturer that has achieved zero landfill status! Using an already positioned building, we strategically dismantled it piece by piece and saved everything we could for reuse and donation. For example, furniture donated, wires and cables salvaged to be recycled, and windows saved for re-use else where. This is an incredibly energy efficient dealership that is estimated to cost less than $200/year to heat and cool!
Outside we have permeable pavement for the landscaping. This eco-friendly, sustainable pavement helps reduce storm water run off, protecting it from solids and pollutants that travel to drainage facilities, and naturally filters the storm water turning it to ground water. Engineered to keep the building pristine while minimizing our energy use and environmental impact. ??♻️
Massive thanks to everyone who was involved in this project! Black Creek Developments Inc., Sublime Design Studio Inc., Peel Passive House, 908 Engineering, Lex 3 Engineering, Sable Electrical Services, Cover Architecture, Heron’s Nest Landscaping, and many more…!!
Our new location address is 6863 50 Avenue, Red Deer AB.
