Calgary Chamber urges focus on pandemic response and economic recovery during upcoming sitting of the Legislature

Alberta Legislature

Calgary, October 25, 2021 – As the Alberta Legislature reconvenes today, the Calgary Chamber encourages the government to focus on several key priorities to support businesses as they navigate ongoing pandemic challenges and look ahead to a strong economic recovery.

“In midst of the fourth wave, the business community requires bold leadership to stabilize our public health system and economy,” says Deborah Yedlin, President and CEO. “Businesses need strong public policy that provides certainty and urgent action on key priorities that will advance our economic recovery.”

On behalf of the Calgary business community, we urge the Alberta Government to prioritize the following:

“Working closely with the business community on these priorities will support and accelerate Alberta’s recovery and ensure we lead the country in economic growth and job creation in the months and years ahead,” says Yedlin. “While this is an ambitious agenda, we need our governments to step up, work together, and support businesses and economic diversification at this critical inflection point in our economic recovery.”
