The Road to Canada’s Economic Recovery Goes Through Alberta’s Industrial Heartland

The Road to Canada's Economic Recovery Goes Through Alberta's Industrial Heartland

THE ROAD TO CANADA’S ECONOMIC RECOVERY GOES THROUGH ALBERTA’S INDUSTRIAL HEARTLAND

Canada’s economic recovery from COVID-19 needs good chemistry. With the country reeling from historic debt levels, including more than $231 billion in pandemic health and safety measures and emergency federal spending, Alberta’s chemistry and value-add manufacturing sectors are critical to ensuring Canada’s future viability.

Before COVID-19, Alberta’s Industrial Heartland was a key driver of Canada’s energy future and a critical piece of Canada’s economic engine. In Alberta alone, the chemistry sector contributes more than $16.2 billion to our economy.

Canada’s way of life is built on chemistry and it is part of everything we touch and everything that touches us. From personal protective equipment to sanitation chemicals and hand sanitizer, advanced chemical manufacturing is the innovation workhorse leading the way as front-line heroes work tirelessly to keep us safe.
“With more than 95% of the world’s manufactured products relying on chemistry and value-add manufacturing, Alberta’s Industrial Heartland region is part of a global value-add manufacturing sector that represents more than 70,000 products that Canadians use every day. It’s personal for all of us and our region is committed to safety, innovation, diversification and sustainability,” says Mark Plamondon, Executive Director of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association.

Now, as Canadians navigate the uncertainty of these times and as we begin to see beyond COVID-19, Alberta’s Industrial Heartland and its more than 40 companies and thousands of employees are critical to helping Canada recover from the economic and market impacts of the pandemic. The region’s ability to produce advanced chemistry products under robust environmental, social and governance conditions positions Canada as a shining example for the world, keeping families safe, food protected and our economy thriving.
