Our Focus Areas

Jobs & Opportunity

We believe our success as a province hinges on the participation and prosperity of all. Prosperity begins with a good job, and future opportunity. To achieve this, we must grow the economy, create jobs now, and equip Albertans to do them better than anyone else on earth.

Competitive & Sustainable Economy

Sustainability requires that we meet the food, fuel, and fibre needs of the world today, and for decades to come, while also setting up our province and the world even better for future generations to meet their own needs. This means building Alberta as the province of challenge-driven innovation and industry, and one that is truly an economic and ESG leader.

Our Approach

Adapt. Collaborate. Preserve.

To build a better Alberta, we harness the collective power of business leaders, entrepreneurs, influential decision-makers, and unexpected collaborators. We boldly face the challenges ahead, ensuring that our business environment remains competitive and prepared for change, and that our assets, our people, and our environment are protected.
