President of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association to Address the Economic Club

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 30, 2014) - Alberta is a powerhouse in the Canadian economy, with natural resources and the energy sector driving much of that growth. The vitality of Alberta's economy attracts many Canadians searching for new opportunities. Alberta has been growing at a rate of a small city every year, and it is anticipated that it will continue to do so for at least the next ten years. With this rapid growth come many challenges, challenges which fall directly on Alberta's municipalities as the front line service providers. These growth pressures most directly affect municipalities that cannot afford to pay for the necessary infrastructure to support such an influx. International private sector investment seeking to relocate business within communities, take into consideration many factors such as the services available and quality of life.
