Alberta’s recovery plan is focused on diversification to help create good jobs now and for future generations. Nowhere are we seeing this more than right here in Calgary.
Recently, EY Canada announced its first Canadian-based Finance Centre of Excellence in Calgary. It joins a growing list of EY Finance Centres of Excellence around the world with distinct areas of focus ranging from cybersecurity, innovation, and analytics to robotic process automation and manufacturing services. Calgary was chosen based on our well-educated and diverse workforce, quality of life, and Alberta’s costs of living and doing business. This is great news as our economy continues to diversify and our province continues to build a reputation as a destination for major international business.
Calgary’s international reputation in the film and television industry continues to grow as well. 2021 was a banner year for Alberta in film and television, with nearly $1 billion in production costs, including HBO’s The Last of Us, the largest production ever filmed in Canada. As a result, for the second consecutive year, Calgary has been named a top ten city in North America to live and work as a moviemaker.
Alberta’s technology industry has had three straight years of incredible growth. In fact, our technology sector in Calgary is one of the fastest growing in North America. From Amazon Web Services’ multibillion-dollar investment in a new cloud computing operation in Calgary to tech giant Infosys setting up shop, Alberta is not only home to a rapidly growing tech sector but a place brimming with remarkable talent and entrepreneurship.
No matter where you look, there are exciting things happening in Alberta. 2022 is going to be a strong year for our province’s economy, as we again lead the country in economic growth and become a leader in a new and exciting future!
