COVID-19 Updates: State of public health emergency declared.
“There is still work to be done, but Statistics Canada had good news for Alberta today, with a third straight month of job growth. Alberta added 19,600 new jobs in September, continuing our economic rebound. We’ve now recovered all of the jobs lost since the beginning of the pandemic.
“In addition, this week we saw one of the largest proposed investments in our province’s history from Dow Chemical. Their announcement of the world’s first net-zero petrochemical plant shows that Alberta is diversifying our economy and is a global leader in emissions reduction.
“We also saw Enbridge’s Line 3 come online, which has led to higher levels of energy exports. Last week was only the third time in recorded history that Alberta exported four million barrels of oil a day to the United States.
“Alberta’s Recovery Plan will continue to diversify today for jobs tomorrow. This year we have seen our film sector double in investment, our tech sector continues to grow rapidly and new momentum in our oil and gas industry. Alberta has a bright economic future.”
