Aja Horsley was working a stable job as an agriculture researcher for a Calgary college when she decided to leave and launch a startup. Seven months ago she entered the business of selling honey, and she is now selling her product on store shelves in every province in the country.

Horsley is one of a number of entrepreneurs spurning the downturn to start a new business, according to city data.

Two Alberta economies: 20,000 new jobs, but not much for laid-off energy workers

By Reid Southwick, Calgary Herald, April 7th, 2017

The latest jobs report spins a tale of two economies in Alberta.

Statistics Canada’s labour market survey for March shows that 63,000 people — roughly the population of Medicine Hat — have been unemployed for six months or longer.

There haven’t been this many workers out of a job for so long since before the recession began. It suggests the pain of mass layoffs in the oilpatch continues to be felt by many Alberta families.


I appreciate all your calls and emails. I'm looking forward to helping you with your next step towards building real wealth.
Your success continues EVERYDAY, let me help you build for tomorrow.

Warm Regards,
