Second Quarter Fiscal + Economic Update
Things are looking up! Today Joe Ceci delivered our second quarter fiscal and economic update. It includes an upgrade to our GDP growth forecast which we have increased twice this year. It now stands at 4% growth which will lead Canada.
Since the low of the recession in the Summer of 2016 Alberta has added over 70,000 full time jobs, mostly in the private sector. Retail sales are up, manufacturing is up, in fact nearly every economic measure that should be up is up.
Alberta is back in the saddle.
