Vegreville Business Visitation Program Results
The Business Visitation Program (BVP) is a core deliverable of the Vegreville Economic Development and Tourism Advisory Board (VEDTAB) and is intended to provide valuable information to the Vegreville Town Council for strategic planning and to the Vegreville & District Chamber of Commerce.
In the fall of 2013, the previous BVP questionnaire was reviewed and revised for conducting surveys of a representative sample of businesses in the immediate Vegreville area. There are 327 businesses listed on the Town of Vegreville website, and it was intended to obtain survey results from 80 of these businesses categorized from within the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) representing the 20 core sectors of the Canadian Economy as a representative sample.

CONGRATULATIONS Chief Lemko
2015 Lifetime Achievement Award© / 2015 Le Prix d’Excellence©
For a sixth year the Canadian Volunteer Fire Services Association conducted a national search to name one of Canada’s best volunteer firefighters based upon a prescribed criteria. The award is known as the, “CVFSA Lifetime Achievement Award”©. The program is administered and managed by the CVFSA and the nomination process was open for a three month period.
A committee of five volunteers from five different regions of Canada reviewed the nominations and selected Fire Chief Jerrold J. Lemko, EMR from Vegreville, Alberta. This marks the first time this award has gone to an Alberta fire officer. It was noted that Chief Lemko has been in a leadership role his whole life in various roles such as coaching, sitting on community associations or his role in a management position as a fire chief or director with the regional fire training group. Chief Lemko will officially be presented his award in Ottawa on September 12 at the annual general meeting of the CVFSA. A more in depth announcement will follow with the accomplishments of this very special individual from Vegreville, Alberta.
