Our Economic Proposals

Welcome to the very core of Alberta's Future.

Below you will find an initial list of economic areas that Alberta's NDP Caucus have already begun working on. We will begin releasing proposal papers on October 16, starting with a forward-looking strategy for hydrogen production.

There are also online and in-person discussions you can sign up for on various areas and more of those opportunities will be added constantly. If we haven't set discussion dates for the area you're most interested in, check back often or sign up on this page for email updates.

The list below is far from exhaustive and will be added to and adjusted as we continue to talk with Albertans like you. Alberta's Future is a conversation for all Albertans. We want to work with you. We need your help.
