WBRIN + East Central Alberta RIN

About Regional Innovation Networks (RIN)

Regional Innovation Network (RIN) are community-based networks of entrepreneur-focused organizations that provide programs and services that aim to accelerate the growth of technology and knowledge-based businesses in their region. There are currently eight RINs in Alberta, including Wood Buffalo Regional Innovation Network (WBRIN) and the East Central Alberta Regional Innovation Network (ECARIN). RINs are funded by the Government of Alberta and administered by Alberta Innovates.

Wood Buffalo Regional Innovation Network

The WBRIN supports initiatives, programs, services and events that strengthen the entrepreneurial and innovation community in the Wood Buffalo region. Our purpose is to increase and capture innovation on the front lines, attract technologies and talent to our community, and inspire a whole new generation of entrepreneurs across Fort McMurray and the entire Wood Buffalo region. The WBRIN is not an organization; it is a network. The organizing body is made up of six organizations, who occupy the roles of co-chairs and a steering committee.

East Central Alberta Innovation Network

The East Central Alberta Regional Innovation Network (ECARIN) envisions a vibrant, innovative, and diverse business environment that creates jobs, increases revenues, and grows opportunities for regional businesses to export to the global market. ECARIN exists to support innovative, technology and knowledg- based Small and Medium Entrepreneurs (SMEs) located in East Central Alberta. ECARIN achieves its goals through the provision of entrepreneurial and venture support services and through building networks and connectivity in partnerships with regional economic development stakeholders. ECARIN ensures that regional innovative entrepreneurs receive access to high-quality supports and services and encourage them to accelerate and diversify their ventures to encourage innovation-based economic development.
