Call Of The West

"The booming Alberta economy has maxed out the labour pool here," "It means employers here have to go somewhere else and with the manufacturing industry in Ontario facing massive layoffs there is an opportunity there." Ray Edwardson Organizer of the Workwest Career Caravan

Alberta's labour shortage has over 30 companies including Greyhound, Lafarge and Century 21 setting up a job fair in Toronto November 3rd and 4th. Police, fire and transit services are also trawling for career minded people to pick up and move west.

Royalties or no increased labour needs mean more people moving out west that will require quality, affordable housing.
