“On Labour Day, we take time to recognize the hard work of all Alberta workers and your contributions as the backbone of Alberta’s economic success.

“As Alberta’s Minister of Labour and Immigration, I offer my heartfelt thanks to workers in every sector of the economy. I appreciate your extraordinary efforts as we rise to today’s challenges. Alberta’s government is proud to support you throughout your career journey.

“Guided by Alberta’s Recovery Plan, Albertans are transforming the province for tomorrow and building on the opportunities of our fast-growing economy today. To help you reach your full potential, we launched the $600-million Alberta at Work initiative to support education and job training.

“Most importantly, we want to ensure that everyone arrives home safely at the end of the day. That’s why we made the occupational health and safety resources available online and we are updating the Occupational Health and Safety Code. We want to ensure that you are protected, treated fairly and return home each night to those you love.

“Thank you to every hard-working Albertan for your contributions to our province’s prosperity and well-being.

“Happy Labour Day!”
