“On behalf of the Government of Alberta, I would like to extend congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their victory, and to all members of the United States Congress elected this week.

“The United States is by far Alberta’s largest trading partner. With a history of American immigration to Alberta, the cultural and social ties between Alberta and the United States are also very strong.  

“U.S. energy security is dependent on Alberta as the United States' largest source of oil imports. Much of the American economy is fuelled by Alberta energy. We look forward to working with President-elect Biden’s transition team and future administration to ensure that this vital economic partnership continues. 

“Canada and the United States must work closely together to protect lives and livelihoods through the COVID crisis, and to return our economies to growth. Alberta looks forward to doing our part in advancing that growth agenda, working with the next U.S. administration and Congress.”
