What's happening in Alberta

Let’s talk about what’s happening in Alberta. June 2021 marked the fourth quarter in a row where more people left Alberta for other parts of Canada than arrived. Canadian companies are experiencing a hiring crunch and are having difficulty filling vacant positions. Employers are running into a skills gap, with people lacking experience and both hard and soft skills, and some businesses saying no one is applying at all. Join UCalgary in a webinar moderated by Chancellor Deborah Yedlin with an expert-led panel to discuss employment in Alberta and ways we can retain our workforce.
