Labour costs

Alberta wage and salary rates are competitive with the rest of Canada and with the United States. When total compensation rates are compared, Alberta provides even more of a cost advantage compared to the U.S., largely because of publicly funded health care. 

The Alberta Wage and Salary Survey covers over 400 occupations. It can be used to find information on wages and salaries for full-time and part-time employees in Alberta by occupation, geographic area and industry group.
