Premier's Council: Shaping Alberta's Future


On May 5, 2011, the Premier's Council for Economic Strategy External released its report, Shaping Alberta's Future PDF. It includes an important call to all Albertans, outlining broad direction on important themes for our future:

  • broadening the economy,
  • realizing the full potential of our energy resources,
  • preparing the province and Albertans for a global economy, and
  • investing in the future.

The report also provides thoughts on how to ensure the province has a strong platform - fiscally, environmentally and with respect to infrastructure - to sustain economic growth. Under each of the five themes, the council outlines some thought-provoking ‘flagship’ initiatives, which Albertans will need time to study and consider moving forward.
