The company chose Stony Plain to set up shop because of its welcoming environment, leasing opportunities, and suitable telecommunications infrastructure. “Our business operates in a virtual world all over North America, so for us, Stony Plain is our base,” says founder Thomas Olson. “Stony Plain has everything a person or a family could want and provides all the amenities and even great events that everyone is welcome to use and attend.”
“Stony Plain is not a suburb or a large centre, but rather a community of itself with a rich and wonderful past that everyone here is very proud of. People in and around Stony Plain have a real sense of belonging to the community, which makes Stony Plain a place you want to be a part of,” continued Olson.
