With COVID officially on the back burner, the Alberta Governments Recovery Plan is in full swing.

The introduction of the plan was to breathe new life into Alberta's economy and create new opportunities for every Albertan.

More specifically, when it was launched in June 2020, the plan was to build, diversify, and create jobs.

Since 2020, housing starts and building permits are up over 30 per cent. Retail trade is currently at its highest increase as it is up 60 per cent from 2020. 

While manufacturing is up 31 per cent, exports are also at an all-time high since 2020 up 49 per cent. The highest YTD (year to date) growth in 20 years.

Since 2020 Alberta has seen nearly 80,000 new businesses incorporated while tech companies have doubled since 2018.

Alberta's goal is to create 90,000 more jobs while promising to allocate 20.7 billion dollars in capital investments, the province has seen a 19.1 per cent increase in jobs while recovering the 337,000 jobs lost in the spring of 2020.
