Business Expenditures in Research and Development (BERD) – expenditures by private firms on research and development. It includes creative work undertaken on a systematic basis in order to increase the stock of knowledge, and the use of this knowledge to devise new applications. R&D covers three activities: basic research, applied research, and experimental development.
Funds leveraged means that communities have partnered with various sources of funds to realize their projects and therefore are addressing their communities’ needs through these investment opportunities. The leverage ratio represents total financial contributions by WD’s partners in relation to WD’s contribution. For example, a leverage ratio of 2 means that for every $1 contributed by WD, partner organizations are contributing a combined amount of $2 to the program.
This grid dataset is part of the three-dimensional (3-D) hydrostratigraphic model of the Sylvan Lake sub-basin in the Edmonton-Calgary Corridor, central Alberta. It represents the net-to-gross sandstone ratio distribution within the Paskapoo Formation - Upper Composite Slice of the Sylvan Lake sub-basin. The Upper Composite Slice is one of three distinct geological domains identified in the Paskapoo Formation of the Sylvan Lake sub-basin model. Characterization of net-to-gross sandstone ratio distribution within the Paskapoo Formation provides information about the geological heterogeneity and potential hydraulic connectivity within the formation for input into a groundwater flow model.

This map, created in 2002 using ArcGIS, describes the number of animal and plant species that are at risk in Alberta. 'Species at risk' is a term used by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) that includes the following categories of plants and animals:Extirpated species - no longer in the wild in Canada.Endangered species - species facing imminent extirpation or extinction.Threatened species - likely to become an endangered species if nothing is done to reverse factors leading to its extirpation or extinction.Species of special concern - species that may become threatened or endangered due to …
High-Growth Firm – Based on list of all businesses in Canada included in Statistics Canada’s Business Register, a “high-growth firm” is an enterprise with average annualized growth greater than 20% per annum over a three-year period. That is, the total growth over a three-year period must be greater than 72.8%. For this indicator, growth has been measured by revenue (though it can also be measured by growth in employment). High-growth enterprises are required to have at least 10 employees at the start of the three-year period, and are also required to be at least four years old.
The dataset includes subsurface stratigraphic picks of the tops of the Horseshoe Canyon/Wapiti and Battle formations in the west-central Alberta Plains (Townships 15 to 67, Ranges 16W4 to 3W6) made from wireline geophysical well logs. The dataset supplements Alberta Geological Survey Open File Report 2011-08, which describes the methodology. We screened the well data to detect errors resulting from deviated wells, as well as incorrect well-header ground and kelly bushing elevation data. Statistical methods identified local and regional statistical outliers, which were examined individually.

All available bathymetry and related information for Outpost Lake were collected and hard copy maps digitized where necessary. The data were validated against more recent data (Shuttle Radar Topography Mission 'SRTM' imagery and Indian Remote Sensing 'IRS' imagery) and corrected where necessary. The published data set contains the lake bathymetry formatted as an Arc ascii grid. Bathymetric contours and the boundary polygon are available as shapefiles.
Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises – Small enterprises are defined as having 1-99 employees. Medium sized enterprises have 100-499 employees. So small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are all firms with less than 500 employees.
Majority-owned / Majority ownership – Majority ownership for each of the designated groups is based on the following parameters: between 51 and 100 percent owned by one or more females; Indigenous persons; youth; visible minorities; people with disabilities. 50:50 ownership, which in the instance of male and female, may include married couples, would not be included in these totals.
