About Wood Buffalo Regional Innovation Network (WBRIN)
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.
