“Alberta continues to be the economic and job creation engine of Canada with our highly skilled workforce, business-friendly policies, diversified economy and affordable and exceptional lifestyle. Our robust economy continues to grow, creating jobs across our province and reinforcing the Alberta Advantage.

“June’s numbers continue to demonstrate Alberta’s strong economy with 10,600 more employed workers. The unemployment rate remains the same while the number of full-time jobs continues to increase on a month-over-month basis, with nearly all of last month’s job increases being full-time. Most of this job growth is coming from the private and services-producing sectors.

“As more jobs are created, Alberta’s government remains focused on attracting people to Alberta to live, work and raise a family. In the first quarter of 2023, a net of more than 50,000 people moved to Alberta, including almost 16,000 from other parts of Canada. There are so many reasons to choose to call Alberta home, and that is why the Alberta is Calling campaign has focused on the province’s great jobs in our diversified economy, liveable cities and natural beauty.

“Over the last 12 months, Alberta’s employment has grown by 2.8 per cent, above the national average of 1.9 per cent. A strong economy, talented workforce and business-friendly policies continue to attract job creators and investment from around the world.”
