Presentation Description:

After surviving the worst recession in three decades, Alberta’s economy began to recover in 2017 and 2018. But as the province enters 2019, the situation is uncertain.

What factors will weigh on Alberta this year? Which critical elements will shape the province in the long-term? And how will Alberta adapt to the rapidly changing global and national economy? Join ATB Financial’s Chief Economist Todd Hirsch as he demystifies the economy and answers these important questions.
