The Alberta government has released the report of the Financial Investment and Planning Advisory Commission as it continues development of a new savings and investment strategy for the province. Government appointed the five-person commission, chaired by Dr. Jack Mintz, head of the University of Calgary’s School of Policy Studies, to review the province’s savings strategy and make recommendations aimed at ensuring Albertans receive the maximum benefits from the province’s savings and investment funds. “There is no question that a lot of work and good thought went into this report and its ...
to disseminate census data. It is usually a small community that does not meet the criteria used to define incorporated municipalities or Statistics Canada urban areas (areas with a population of at least 1,000 and no fewer than 400 persons per square kilometre). 1 Designated places are created by provinces and territories, in cooperation with Statistics Canada, to provide data for submunicipal areas. 1 Alberta Finance and Enterprise is Statistics Canada’s provincial focal point for the identification of Alberta’s designated places. As of the 2006 Census of Canada , Alberta had 262 designated places with a cumulative population ...
Quebec and Alberta call on Minister Flaherty to Abandon His Project
The Minister of Finance of Québec, Raymond Bachand, and the Minister of Finance and Enterprise of Alberta, Ted Morton, met in Montreal on June 15. Once again, they called on the federal Minister of Finance, Jim Flaherty, to abandon his plans to set up a federal securities commission. Instead, Minister Bachand and Minister Morton encourage him, if he truly seeks to protect investors, to quickly amend the Criminal Code to make the changes he has identified to better protect Canadians from financial crimes. “The federal government’s approach is inconsistent. Canada has gone through one of the greatest financial crises of modern ... market research, surveys and trends
Open Government – Embargoed in Alberta | fusedlogic
clearly not everyone.  In the case of Lynda Steele and Global Edmonton, and the three minute violation of the Government of Alberta (GoA) Embargo of the Ted Morton, Minister of Finance and Enterprise, and the Budget 2010 press conference, I can understand the strict stance by the Public Affairs Bureau to enforce adherence to such an agreement.  Understanding and agreeing with the actions taken are two different things however. Also, many probably know by now, this wasn’t entirely Lynda Steeles’ fault by the way, someone else is culpable within Global for the release of certain information.  Further, I like the folks ... market research, surveys and trends

The CPP dilemna
Last week, Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, supported by his Ontario counterpart, recommended that we look at expanding the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) (political speak for increasing both benefits and contributions). According to Alberta’s minister of finance and enterprise, Ted Morton, it’s the wrong move at the wrong time. “Alberta does not support an expansion,” he said, calling the federal finance minister’s scheme an “overreaction.” He’s right. These are difficult times for everyone, not just retirees. Increasing contributions to the CPP, Morton explained, is not targeted ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

By many yardsticks, our 'Western Tiger' is no roaring success
This is an aerial view of the Suncor oil sands extraction facility on the banks of the Athabasca River near the town of Fort McMurray, Alberta, on October 23, 2009. EDMONTON - Alberta's massive oil and gas wealth has made it an economic powerhouse. If one goes by standard measures such as average household income, GDP per capita or government debt levels, Alberta is in a league of its own. Which is why the TD Bank once hailed the province as Canada's "Western Tiger." But a new report on Alberta's competitiveness -- prepared for Alberta Finance and Enterprise by PricewaterhouseCoopers -- paints a more mixed ...

We have all asked this question: "is it over yet?". The economic meltdown has been global, but it has been a strange recession. The US economy grew 3.5 % from July through September. Canada's economy grew by a healthy 0.3 % in February. Canada has seen its economy grow steadily for the past six months. Luxury home sales in Canada at their highest level ever. Car sales have been steady. However salaries and wages are stalled, and consumer confidence is still low. Here in Alberta we are encouraged by the rise in the price of oil, but natural gas prices - where Alberta earns most of its revenue - are still well below 2008 ...
