New schools in Alberta’s growing communities, released by Alberta on 01 March 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.

As the province continues to grow, Alberta’s government is investing in new schools and student spaces to meet that growth and provide the learning spaces students need for success. If passed, Budget 2024 would advance 43 priority school projects, including 28 new schools, 10 replacement schools and five modernizations. When complete, these projects will create about 35,000 new and modernized spaces for Alberta students to learn, grow, and meet their full potential.

With an additional 43 projects included in this year’s budget, the government is funding a total of 98 school projects in various stages across the province.

As part of the $2.1 billion three-year capital investment, $103 million over three years will be used to supply modular classrooms to quickly increase classroom spaces in schools facing significant capacity challenges. Collegiate schools and public charter schools will be supported by a commitment of $123 million over three years, as Alberta’s government continues to expand career education and support a full range of school choices for students and families.

The recent announcement holds crucial implications for Teachers and Administrators contemplating a move to Alberta. By providing insights into the existing opportunities, it equips Teachers and Administrators with the necessary information to adapt their immigration strategies in anticipation of the sector’s evolving demands.
