As a non-profit community and economic development organization, The Olds Institute for Community and Regional Development is owned by the community and driven by volunteers. Also known as the Olds Institute, we leverage the resources in the community by empowering volunteers to build the innovative and entrepreneurial community for which Olds has become famous. Olds residents have opted to pitch in and support the initiatives that enhance the community and improve our quality of life.
Help raise our barn, and we will help raise yours.
Together, we accomplish more.
“We do not wait and wonder what life would be like if opportunity presented itself. The Olds Institute empowers the community to make good things happen.”Learn about OI >
