If you’re a skilled tradesperson looking for employment, Alberta has 5,000 reasons why you should consider working there.

The Alberta government will offer a one-time $5,000 refundable tax credit to newcomers who move to Alberta to work in high-demand trades jobs. The government is dedicating $10 million from this year’s budget to its Alberta is Calling attraction bonus.

Alberta vocational schools are not training enough skilled tradespeople to keep up with the demand, says Jobs, Economy and Trade Minister Matt Jones.

“Skilled trades workers are key to building Alberta today and tomorrow,” Mr. Jones said during a March 12 press conference. “From homes to hospitals to schools to large-scale capital infrastructure, they are needed by the thousands.”
