Our cover story examines the tough economic climate in Alberta, which has been devastated by the international oil crisis. Rachel Notley's NDP government will reveal the provincial budget on April 14 but already many laid off workers have moved on to other provinces to find employment.

Columnist Joe Connelly offers advice on how to save a customer relationship that may have gone off the rails. Mark Borkowski discusses private equity groups that have money to spend but are finding it difficult to land substantial deals. Mark Burden examines the RFP effect and how to fix it while Ennio Vita-Finzi offers his professional viewpoint on Canada's Services sector and why he believes it's an undervalued expertise. Al Varney's article on how companies are literally being buried in an avalanche of paper is another very worthwhile read.

In our Business in Action Section we get an update from the executives of CLAC. Despite a construction slowdown in Alberta, many of its members will be front and centre on the massive $8.3 billion Site C dam project in B.C. There's also a leadership change on the horizon as the union continues to diversify its workforce.

Also in this issue we take an in depth look at Angstrom Engineering of Kitchener, Ontario, a global high-tech company that specializes in vacuum solutions for thin-film applications. Additionally, there are great features on Gananoque and the Thousand Islands, Downtown Automotive Group, Engineers Canada and popular retailer Giant Tiger.
