    - Financial Services delegation in Toronto to raise awareness

    EDMONTON, June 8 /CNW/ - Edmonton is emerging as a strong, significant

Western Bank, ATB Financial and the recently formed Alberta Investment
Management Corporation (AIMCo), one of the nation's largest investment fund
managers with assets of $70 billion.
