we can choose our future.
The economy is improving, but Albertans are still anxious about the future, because we understand that our challenges are greater than just another boom-bust cycle. We are facing a fundamental transformation of the global energy economy.
Preparing our economy to prosper through this transformation will be our greatest challenge. We must decide where we stand, and how we’ll face the next chapter of Alberta’s economic future.
Will we fall back to the status quo? Or will we build a diverse economy together with resilience, innovation, and courage?
Are you ready for what’s next?
“We are at a crossroads.
I choose the path of diversification, of supporting families through economic uncertainty, of protecting our public services, and of using our opportunities within the oil and gas sector to dream beyond it.
If we work together, I believe we can build the future we deserve.”

Next Alberta is a project by and for the working people of Alberta. We are nurses, firefighters, construction workers, paramedics, bus drivers, retail workers, officer workers and more. We are your neighbours, your friends, and your family.
Together we build Alberta, and keep it strong and moving forward.
As a province, we are facing a new challenge. The global oil market is changing, and our stability and economic certainty rely on us changing too.
The upcoming Alberta election will determine whether we’ll be properly prepared to face these challenges – or not.
Next year, we face a choice. We can choose politicians who deny that change is happening. Or, we can choose politicians who see the challenge presented by the energy transformation and are willing to support Albertans and Alberta businesses come out the other side stronger.
Planning for the future makes more sense than burying our heads in the sand.
Over the next few months, Next Alberta will be leading a conversation about how to move towards a diverse and resilient economy, built by highly trained workers on a strong foundation of world-class infrastructure.
