A vital part of Alberta's economy

About 415,000 Albertans depend on the province’s oil and natural gas industry for employment.

Alberta has a diverse economy that includes agriculture, forestry and a growing tech industry. However, a competitive and growing oil and natural gas industry is essential to the jobs and prosperity of all Albertans, while also acting as an economic engine for the entire nation through economic spin-offs and royalties and taxes for governments.
