Alberta’s Industrial Heartland (January 22, 2015) – Industrial construction projects and plans for $14+ billion in future growth in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland will generate valuable income and employment. Details of industry’s investment plans were highlighted at the annual Stakeholder Update and Luncheon hosted by Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association (AIHA).

Given lower oil prices and economic uncertainty, current and future investment plans were well received by the capacity crowd of over 500 leaders in business, industry and government.

“The cyclical nature of Alberta’s economy presents unique opportunities for investment, particularly during a downturn,” commented Wayne Woldanski, Chair of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association. “We heard today that many companies operating in the Heartland are committed to their expansion plans, given their long term optimistic outlook. Success in the Heartland region will be critical to helping counteract the slow down in the upstream sector, diversify Alberta’s economy, and provide much needed new forms of government revenue.”
