Notley Says Alberta Must Remain Competitive Amid Oil Shock

Updated on

Alberta is considering a plan to balance its budget in 2018 but it won’t be at the expense of competitiveness in Canada’s third largest provincial economy, Premier Rachel Notley said.

Her government, which drew criticism for raising some taxes as the province grapples with an oil-industry downturn, may cut levies in some areas and won’t introduce a sales tax during its current mandate, she said Wednesday at Bloomberg LIVE’s Canadian fixed income conference in New York.
