Alberta’s economy will shrink by billions of dollars in 2020 and the unemployment rate is set to exceed 20%. Starting the year with a price war launched by foreign countries, combined with a global pandemic, demand has been decimated and Alberta’s economy is in crisis.

  • How Alberta technology can transform the future of global energy;
  • The steps Alberta’s energy sector can take to power a cleaner and more competitive economy;
  • How to foster a culture of innovation in Alberta to create exportable IP, attract top talent, and diversify the energy sector and economy.
