There are signs of change in the Town of Vermilion, as the Town under goes a facelift.  Emerging from the Brand/Marketing Plan a number of projects are coming to life through the Economic Development department.

The Projects include:

  • Blade Sign Program for the Retail/Commercial Sector Downtown
  • Tourist Information Centre Sign
  • New Highway 41 and Railway Avenue Banners
  • Directional Signs throughout the town
  • Business Park Signs for Yellowhead and East Point Business Parks
  • New Highway 41 Entrance Signs
  • New Town Hall Sign and Digital Sign

“These signage projects, which began in 2012, are a key piece to our Marketing Plan and it is very exciting to see them come to life.  Our marketing is designed to increase awareness of Vermilion as a vibrant, growing community, a community with ‘New Ideas for Living’– open for business and investment.” said Community Economic Development Coordinator Mary Lee Prior.

At the end of April the Town also progressed with a soft launch of their new website which included facebook and twitter.  A work in progress the response so far has been very positive. Find us on Facebook under Town of Vermilion. On Twitter the town holds two accounts.  Follow @TownofVermilion for general information on Vermilion. Follow @NewIdeas4Living for Vermilion’s Economic Development and Tourism Information.

Earlier this year the Town of Vermilion was recognized provincially for their marketing initiatives supporting economic development. The awards honoured Alberta communities and individuals for excellence in business attraction, retention, expansion and marketing.  These awards endorsed the direction on economic development our Vermilion Council has chosen and the successes to date.
