Tanya Fir will become the Minister for Jobs, Economy and Innovation while continuing to serve as the Associate Minister of Red Tape Reduction.

“Alberta is breaking records in attracting new, job-creating investment that has helped get more than 200,000 Albertans working since the start of 2021. As we continue to implement Alberta’s Recovery Plan, we know that we will add on to the more than $150 billion of new investment that has come into Alberta since we formed government.

“As someone who served in this portfolio previously, and who has done tremendous work in the related Red Tape Reduction portfolio, Minister Fir is ready to get into the full swing on Day 1. Minister Fir will build on our successes as we look to the future to ensure that Alberta remains the best place in the world to live, work and raise a family.”
