ACA Budget 2022 Reaction

Alberta Construction Association is pleased that Budget 2022 supports construction families across Alberta. Budgeted expenditures increase $900 million in 2022-23 and $450 million in 2023-2024 compared to 2021 Budget.

ACA also applauds the government’s commitment to significantly increase funds to support Albertans to improve skills and successfully gain employment – more than $600 million over the next three years. Alberta’s construction industry has numerous opportunities for rewarding careers to replace more than 24,000 expected retirees over the next decade.

ACA appreciates the Government’s acknowledgment that people will continue to move to Alberta. Whether new schools for increased student enrolments, transit projects to reduce congestion and get goods to market, and hospitals to meet health care, the Provincial Government must continue to invest in infrastructure regardless of economic circumstances. The level of investment needs to keep pace with population growth and inflation.
