Small Business Advocate

Calgary, Alberta

Amber Ruddy spends a lot of time with small business owners through her work at the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB). She knows first-hand the importance of the energy sector to her clients’ success, and by extension the health of Alberta’s economy. 

“Entrepreneurs in Alberta understand that the success of their business is tied to the health to the energy sector. That’s why I believe that it’s important for Canadians to stand up for what they believe in and support the oil and gas sector,” she says. 

Amber advocates on behalf of CFIB’s 10,000 small business owners in Alberta, such as local grocery stores and tech start-ups. Standing up for them also means supporting the industry that is critical to their success. For these reasons, Amber is a proud Energy Citizen.
