ALBERTA’s Birthday Party

September 1 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

| Free

FIRST ANNUAL, MULTIPLE LOCATION, ALBERTA BIRTHDAY PARTY
&
LAUNCH OF ALBERTA VERIFIED PROGRAM

– For Immediate Release – August, 15, 2019 –

(Calgary) Albertans are proud people and love their province. Albertans identify as Albertans first. A new initiative is celebrating Alberta with a multiple location Birthday party on September 1, 2019. The events will be free to the public and an opportunity for Albertans of all backgrounds to come together and honour Alberta. The birthday party will also be the formal launch of the Alberta Verified program to promote Alberta products to Albertans.

“On September 1, we will be launching a non partisan and non political initiative that will work with and encourage Alberta eateries, stores and more to use Alberta products and be recognized for doing so. We will meet with eateries, grocery stores and companies to ensure that they are indeed sourcing their beer, food, plastics etc… with Alberta originated products, labour and / or ingredients. By buying products that support our family, neighbours and friends we can make Alberta stronger and create more jobs by buying local.

There are so many negative calls for boycotts of other provinces that we do not feel are effective. We feel informing the consumer of what is actually verified as Albertan will provide them a choice to support Alberta with their hard earned money. We feel providing something positive on where people can choose to spend their money, rather than telling people they need to boycott something will achieve better results and something Albertans will embrace.” Stated Jim Blake, Communications Director for the Alberta Verified program.

Once an Alberta Verified representative meets with a company and they join the program the company will be able to display the Alberta Verified logo beside menu items, on packaging, their website and on the entrance of their premises. Costs for companies are $50 per location for the honour to use the Alberta verified logo and to be listed in the Alberta Verified directory.

“We feel that this initiative is positive and is exactly what Alberta needs. We are family and need to help one another and quite frankly, I think Albertans are sick of the negative attacks on Alberta and this allows us to unite in a constructive manner by promoting each other. the best part about our program is that it is voluntary and the government is not involved in legislating this idea” continued Blake.
