Work in Alberta

Low taxes, low cost of living and a diverse economy are just a few of the many reasons to work in Alberta.

As a resource-based economy with a large oil and gas industry, Alberta is influenced by changes in world market prices. Our job market and economy move up and down with the price of oil. During a downturn, Alberta still grows and diversifies, but at a slower rate. In fact, many of our industries benefit from lower fuel prices including forestry, agriculture, food, manufacturing and tourism. Alberta’s diverse economy drives growth in numerous industries.
