Job growth kicks off 2024: Minister Jones, released by Alberta on 09 February 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.

Alberta began 2024 showing its economic strength by putting more Albertans to work. A strong increase of 23,800 full-time jobs in January builds on the growth we saw last year.

“Alberta’s economy is expected to remain one of the strongest in Canada in 2024, and jobs are a critical part of this. This is all thanks to the Alberta Advantage. Our competitive tax rate, highly skilled workforce, abundant natural resources and world-class education system mean we will continue to be the economic engine of Canada.

“The advantages Alberta have here are noticed across the country and around the world. Domestic and global companies continue to see promise in Alberta, with 322 major projects under construction as of Dec. 31 totalling approximately $82.7 billion in investment. The hard-working Albertans helping to get these projects off the ground are also making an average of $1,301 per week. This is more than their counterparts in any other province and well above the national average, which translates to more money in the pockets of Alberta workers.
