The UCP ran on a compelling platform that emphasizes lower taxes, a business-friendly environment, a focus on worker training and development and a strong pro-resource development philosophy along with strengthening investment in the expanding renewables sector

“We look forward to continuing to work with the UCP to address the critical labour shortage by removing barriers to skills training, and building Alberta’s diverse construction workforce and labour models, all of which are crucial to strengthening our economy and maximizing the Alberta advantage,” added de Jong.
