Alberta’s economic recovery from the global pandemic and the oil price crisis far exceeded expectations last year, and the province’s growth will be at or near the top of all provinces this year.
Economic growth and job gains will help drive the province’s revenue up from an estimated $61.7 billion in 2021-22 to an estimated $63.9 billion in 2024-25.
Alberta is making the right investments. The fiscal plan provides the health-care system with more capacity, funds improved training and employment programs and helps employers fill their vacancies.
The 3-year plan will support tens of thousands of jobs and invest in strategic infrastructure projects that will expand capacity in the health system, support Albertans in developing their skills and attract private sector investment.
