ATB Business Beat:

Optimism growing in Alberta

March 2018

As Alberta begins to emerge from the economic downturn, business owners throughout the province are adjusting to a new normal. While it will likely take another year or two before the province experiences prosperity similar to what it knew before the 2014 downturn, optimism is already growing among Alberta’s small- and medium-sized enterprises.

In the latest Business Beat, we take an in-depth look at the challenges facing entrepreneurs in this changing province. The key takeaway? As the economic forecast brightens, the time for high-level strategic planning is right now.
