Premier Redford focuses ministerial team on innovation and economic growth

Premier Alison Redford today announced a strengthened ministerial team that will drive the next phase of the Building Alberta Plan, while continuing to rebuild in the wake of the worst natural disaster in Alberta’s history.

“Our government is determined to deliver on our commitments and build an even stronger, safer and more prosperous Alberta. The strengthened ministerial team will lead the next phase of the Building Alberta Plan, with a focus on expanding our economy, driving innovation and working every day to create an even better quality of life for Albertans.”

- Premier Alison Redford

Premier Alison Redford said her Government will focus on an active agenda in 2014, as part of the Building Alberta Plan, including:

  • Ensuring Alberta has the skilled workforce and training opportunities we need to keep growing our economy;
  • Building an innovative and diversified economy to ensure Alberta is well-positioned for the future;
  • Balancing Alberta’s budget through an expanded Results-Based Budgeting process that challenges every dollar government spends;
  • Strengthening front-line health care and driving down wait times by building additional family care clinics;
  • Moving forward with the next wave of new and expanded schools in our fastest-growing communities to keep class sizes low;
  • A determined and focused rebuilding effort in communities affected by the June floods, including large community mitigation projects to protect Albertans;
  • Continued action to make our streets and communities safer, with a focus on new approaches to fight bullying and crime;
  • Keeping electricity rates affordable for Alberta families and building on Alberta’s success in developing renewable energy.
  • Working, every day, to open new markets for Alberta’s resources and products.

“Albertans elected our government to lead in changing times, and with this team we will meet the challenges associated with our enormous population growth head-on. I’m excited about the work ahead in building Alberta – for the 4 million Albertans today, and the million more we’ll welcome over the next 10 years.”

- Premier Alison Redford

Under the Building Alberta Plan, our government is investing in families and communities, living within our means, and opening new markets for Alberta's resources to ensure we're able to fund the services Albertans told us matter most to them. We will continue to deliver the responsible change Albertans voted for.
