Alberta Economy Heating Up

It certainly seems as though Alberta is enjoying success that other jurisdictions can only dream about.  Unlike Europe, where debt troubles abound and bailouts are being discussed on every corner, or the US where unemployment is still a major problem in many areas, or even some of Canada’s more troubled provinces like Ontario where manufacturing is struggling and the debt load is escalating, we Albertans have it pretty good!

Recently we found out that Alberta tops Canada’s growth rankings, according to RBC, that Edmonton’s affluence recently attracted a major US retailer, and that employers in Western Canada are optimistic about hiring, among other good news articles.

As you can imagine, all of this growth in Western Canada drives demand for employees and companies looking to hire are actively seeking new ways to attract and retain talented people.

We’re biased, of course, but we think that a Group Employee Mortgage Plan is a unique and very effective way to do just that.  If you would like to learn more, then we would be happy to answer any of your questions.  Feel free to contact us anytime.
