This and That

Alberta's economy to boom
“Employment in the province is expected to increase by 2.9 per cent this year, the same as in 2013, about three times the national average. That was underlined in last Friday's labour market report from Statistics Canada which showed that of 85,500 jobs created in Canada over the last 12 months, 71,200 were in Alberta.”

 I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: job + salary = need for housing. First, folks come for the jobs and rent, some will buy a home, some continue renting and some move to another province. A strong economy is good for the housing market.  HERE

Planning and protecting the Pacific Coast -

I’m sure we’ll see a mini-boom of refinery proposals for North Western B.C. when/if Northern Gateway goes through. It’s a numbers game – many will race in few will get approval and have the wherewithal to complete.

It's good to see forward looking expansion in the area, especially with the high level of environmental scrutiny in place. HERE

Alberta's Jobs -
Did I mention that a lot of jobs are created in Alberta? That’s one of the reasons why the economy is so darn good right now. HERE and HERE
