Northern Alberta's Robust Economy Focus of Talks with Harper's Cabinet Ministers

EDMONTON - Many Canadians don’t realize how vital the Alberta oilsands are to the national economy, and the need for a public dialogue based on facts is critical to the success of the industry, says the co-author of a report by a leading financial advisory firm.

“The oilsands are going to be the economic engine for the country for the foreseeable future, for the next 25 to 30 years, and it is akin to the impact of building the national railway in the 1880s,” said Marc Joiner, a partner at Deloitte in Toronto.

The firm’s report, Gaining Ground in the Sands 2013, outlines 10 obstacles and opportunities and cites the need for a national debate and some kind of unified action and direction, perhaps along the lines of the Canadian energy strategy being promoted by Alberta Premier Alison Redford.

If federal cabinet ministers Jason Kenney, Maxime Bernier and Ed Fast didn’t fully appreciate just how much northern Alberta’s oilsands-driven economy is contributing to Canada’s GDP, or the magnitude of the region’s pressing labour force needs, they do now.
A delegation of Edmonton business and educational leaders travelled to Ottawa last week, where they delivered that message in spades in private meetings with several senior members of the Harper government.

They included representatives from the Prime Minister’s Office, as well as Immigration Minister Kenney, Bernier (the Minister of State, Small Business and Tourism), and Fast, the Minister of International Trade, Minister of Asia-Pacific Gateway.  GRAB THIS STORY

These yardsticks include faster economic and house price growth this year, along with more housing starts in four of the past five months.
