Creating Economic Prosperity In The Construction Sector In A Post Pandemic Environment

Wondering what initiatives are being taken to get Alberta's economy back on track? This article takes a look at what The Government of Alberta is doing to boost our economy and what the industry should expect in the coming post-pandemic stages.

With the collapse of worldwide economies due to the COVID pandemic, governments are stepping up with public money to create new jobs and projects that can help the economic recoveries of their nations. Alberta’s government plans to spend billions of dollars investing in core infrastructure projects to create over 32,000 jobs. Roads, schools, hospitals, highways, housing and other public buildings are some of the types of projects earmarked for funding. They are also working on removing regulations in many different areas that have been barriers to job creation. By funding these projects and removing red tape, Alberta hopes to set the stage for a recovery to pre-pandemic levels and continue to grow Alberta’s economy. Here's what industry businesses can expect and how to prepare for the projected future.
