ATB Business Beat:

Are Alberta businesses growing despite the economic downturn?

January 2018

While Alberta may be emerging from recession, it will likely take a couple of years before the province experiences a full economic recovery. In light of this slow return to growth, we decided to take an in-depth look into how Alberta small and mid-sized (SMEs) businesses are approaching business growth and viability in a slow-moving economy.

In our most recent Business Beat, we asked SMEs if and how they are still being impacted by the economic downturn, whether they have the funds to drive growth and what other growth barriers they may be facing along with their perspectives on expansion beyond Alberta's borders.
