Topic: Rebuilding Alberta’s Economy in 2018

After two years of recession, Alberta’s economy appears to be rounding a corner. Oil prices have firmed up a bit and some progress has been made on pipeline projects.

Yet challenges lie in the way of a full recovery—worries about trade deals with the US, an unemployment rate that threatens to remain high and worries about debt levels and housing markets persist.

So what does the rebuild of Alberta’s economy look like under these conditions? Will we see more diversity this year? And how long might a full recovery take? Join ATB's Chief Economist Todd Hirsch as he demystifies the economy and answers these important questions.
