Creating jobs in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland, released by Alberta on 16 May 2024

Good day ladies and gentlemen, this is IRC news, I am Joy Stephen, a certified Canadian Immigration practitioner, and I bring to you this Provincial News Bulletin from the province of Alberta. This recording originates from the Polinsys studios in Cambridge, Ontario.

The Designated Industrial Zone (DIZ) in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland (AIH) launched in 2022 to streamline regulatory approvals and support infrastructure development while maintaining world-class environmental standards. The program is helping attract major new projects, including Dow’s Path2Zero facility.

No new water intakes have been developed in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland for more than a decade, even though demand by industry has grown. The government’s $50.5-million investment over five years will help build three new water intake facilities in the DIZ. This will help create jobs, grow the petrochemical sector, reduce global emissions and diversify Alberta’s economy.

Building up the Designated Industrial Zone is a transformative investment in Alberta’s future. By harnessing the potential of the zone, the Alberta government will drive economic growth, stimulate innovation and create a more prosperous province today, and for future generations.
