ATB Business Beat:

How has the economic recession impacted businesses in Alberta?

January 2017

For the last two years the current economic downturn has been top of mind for many of Alberta’s small and mid-sized businesses (SMEs). In this ATB Business Beat we ask if the impact of the economic downturn has been positive or negative for these businesses and what changes (if any) they’ve made to staffing, operations and cash flow management to weather the storm. We also ask if Alberta SMEs believe the Alberta economy, and their business, will be better off, the same or worse six months from now.
