Alberta iMarket (AIM)

Alberta iMarket (AIM)

A full-featured online marketplace where you can sell your products and services.
Leverage our training, support, nominal cost and the benefit of aggregated marketing.

The Alberta iMarket concept originated in a desire to promote regional, and rural, products and services to both a local, and a larger market.
