The County of Grande Prairie Certified Industrial Site Program focuses on pre-qualifying industrial properties primed for development and ready for investment. By completing proactive due diligence in advance and confirming site viability, Certified Sites make the decision-making process easier and faster for site selectors. The program provides a certified site designation to properties that fulfil predetermined program requirements. The factors chosen were validated with input from local real estate professionals and economic development staff and builds off the success of other select state and provincial certified site programs particularly the approach used by the Province of Ontario. The factors consist of a wide variety of screening categories, including ownership, land type and permitted use, and infrastructure availability and development constraints.

The sites demonstrate development viability and make the decision-making process easier for investors. Certified Sites minimize risk, build investor confidence and streamline the sales process.
