Today, Premier Jason Kenney announced the Alberta’s Economic Recovery Plan to help our province get over the economic devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic and restore economic growth.
This recovery plan will address both the short-term and long-term challenges facing our province and its keywords include creating jobs, building, and diversifying. Here are some highlights:
- An investment of $10 billion in Alberta’s infrastructure, creating 50,000 jobs this year.
- An Innovation Employment Grant for smaller companies encouraging technology and investment in Alberta;
- Putting Albertans (including newcomers to Alberta) first by connecting the unemployed with available jobs and employers and reducing this year’s targeted admissions under the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program by one-third.
