On behalf of the Government of Alberta, it is my pleasure to send greetings to readers of the 2023 edition of Invest in Alberta/Xperience Alberta magazine.
In spite of the challenges of the last few years and the current inflationary crisis, our province remains one of the best places in the world to live, work and raise a family. That’s why the Government of Alberta wants to send a message to the community, to investment markets and to the world that Alberta is a place that is open for business. It is a place of unparalleled natural beauty and immense opportunity. It is a place that believes in freedom and free enterprise.
Here, we will not make arbitrary decisions that disproportionately affect the business community, or restrict any individual’s ability to pursue their dreams and achieve prosperity. We will collaborate with our community, industry and government partners to care for people, grow our economy, foster innovation and create jobs while keeping the books balanced. We have plenty of work yet to do — work in which economic developers like you will play a significant role — but I believe Albertans’ best days are ahead.
Thank you to Economic Developers Alberta for your ongoing efforts to advance this vital profession in our province. I appreciate your commitment to your members and Alberta’s bright future.
Hon Danielle Smith, Premier of Alberta
