The Winterburn Business Association
Ketek’s president, Brad Abel, serves as the president of the the Winterburn Business Association (WBA), which was established to represent the needs of its members to Edmonton city councillors and other stakeholders on matters of importance to the businesses in the Winterburn area.
Winterburn, west of Edmonton, was annexed by the City of Edmonton in 1981, but at the time no plan was made for adequate roads, sewers, or other basic services. Despite this, Winterburn has seen steady growth because of its affordable land values and proximity to the major transportation arteries of the Anthony Henday Drive ring road and Highway 16 (Yellowhead Trail). Today, there are hundreds of businesses located in this park, with thousands of people travelling in and out each day, but the basic infrastructure remains lacking.
