Progressive West Consulting

Progressive West Consulting has been working on community development projects in southern Alberta since 2017, with municipal administrations, nonprofits, private businesses, and more, we take projects futher. Our team is demonstrably talented at both building partnerships and leveraging our clients' money against other contributions to create a larger impact than many of them thought possible, and we've demonstrated this ability time and again from projects as simple as gas-station remediation, to the deployment of federal infrastructure funding to build EV stations across the province. 

Our team brings the required range of talent and expertise to offer a rewarding experience for your next project. Great teams produce great results! At Progressive West Consulting we are an enthusiastic, motivated, group of  talented individuals deeply committed to the work we do in communities. We are proud to have been a part of various municipal endeavours, community and branding initiatives in southern Alberta over the  past 10 years and are well aware of the challenges and opportunities working in small and rural communities. The success of our projects has been due in large part to the complimentary skills of the team but also because of our extensive engagement experience, bridging divides, and identifying common core values.
