    The association representing Central Alberta’s Home Builders has been working on a brand change for the last few months.   Formerly known as the Canadian Home Builders Association of Central Alberta, the new brand is the Building Industry and Land Development Association of Central Alberta (BILD CA).

    When BILD CA hosted the annual industry awards for this region it was decided it was the perfect time to introduce a new award to recognize historical achievements.   The Industry Icon Award honours an individual who has uniquely impacted the industry and association through their time, dedication and efforts for over 20 years.

    BILD Central Alberta’s first Industry Icon Award recipient will be no surprise to those who are aware of the home building industry in this area.   In fact Gord Bontje is the ideal recipient of the inaugural Industry Icon Award.   It’s safe to say over 10 percent of Red Deer’s population lives in a home or an apartment built by Laebon Homes.  As founder of the company, Bontje guided Laebon from one of many home builders in the area, into one of the few capable of developing entire neighbourhoods.  From original Laebon neighbourhoods such as  Clearview, to newer ones like Beacon Hill at Sylvan Lake, or Timber Ridge in Red Deer, in some ways Laebon neighbourhoods have shaped the look of Central Alberta.

    The Sun Sets on the Red Deer Market

  • On the Thanksgiving weekend, the Red Deer Market bid farewell to its part-time home by the Memorial Centre, Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School and Ecole Camille J. Lerouge.  The Market will return to its roots by the arena (now the Servus Arena) and the curling rink (now the Pidherney Centre) on the May Long Weekend of 2019.

    Dennis Moffat started the Red Deer Farmers’ Market (now the Red Deer Market) almost half a century ago – 48 years to be precise. With the assistance of son, Patrick, and daughter, Fiona, Dennis Moffat brought local produce and wares (and even some not-so-local) for the enjoyment and benefit of Central Albertans.

    Dennis spoke highly of the Markets’ neighbours, the homeowners of Waskasoo. He said how they had embraced the Market and supported it, never complaining about too much traffic or the noise or congestion. He’ll miss them but he’s happy to be returning to where it all began.
