Changing the Narrative: New ways to think about Alberta’s economy in 2022

March 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm MDT

Free
As we enter a new year, a lot has changed — yet a lot remains the same. COVID is still with us, climate change is even more pressing and global trade remains unsettled. Alberta’s economy is transforming, but we need new ways to think about our economy in order to thrive in a permanently uncertain world. What lies ahead? And how will a new narrative help us adjust?
