About the Heritage Fund

The Heritage Fund is Alberta’s main long-term savings fund. The Fund was established in 1976 to collect a portion of Alberta’s non-renewable resource revenue for future generations.

Today, the Alberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMCo) invests the Fund in a globally diversified portfolio across many assets classes, such as stocks, bonds, and real estate.

The income produced by the Fund supports government programs essential to Albertans like health care, education and infrastructure.

The Alberta Heritage Savings Trust Fund is unique to Alberta. No other province has such a fund.
