Agriculture

Agriculture represents Alberta’s largest sustainable industry. It employs more than 75,000 Albertans and exports more than $11.6 billion in primary and value-added products.

Forestry

Public forests are an integral part of Alberta’s social fabric, culture and economy. Healthy forests provide multiple environmental, community and economic benefits to all; sustainable forest management practices ensure that Alberta’s forests are healthy and resilient for generations to come.

Forestry is a sustainable, renewable resource sector and Alberta’s third largest industry. It supports 946 small businesses and 58 medium/large businesses, which employs about 40,000 Albertans.
