The manufacturing sector is undergoing a seismic shift.
In a year when some provinces are seeing their manufacturing job growth hit a wall, Alberta has seen its manufacturing employment grow by nearly 400,000 over the past three years.
A new report from the Fraser Institute, which analyzes manufacturing data, shows that the province is one of the fastest-growing regions in Canada.
The report notes that Alberta’s job growth in manufacturing has been driven by a combination of factors, including the fact that its manufacturing industry is still growing, as it has been for decades.
But it also notes that many of those factors are in place in Alberta’s largest province.
The province is seeing a number of different factors contributing to this job growth, but the main ones are an influx of people who want to work in the manufacturing sector, as well as the province’s continued investment in technology.
Alberta’s manufacturing sector has seen a massive influx of skilled workers.
It’s not just people from Alberta.
Many manufacturing workers are from the U.S. and elsewhere, too.
The institute found that the number of manufacturing jobs in Alberta increased by 5.6 per cent over the last three years, driven by the growth in skilled workers, as more of those workers have found jobs in the country.
Alberta has also seen a lot of investments in its manufacturing sector in recent years.
For example, in the past year alone, the province has invested $7.4 billion to support its manufacturing workforce.
Alberta is also investing heavily in infrastructure, especially in the transportation sector, to make it easier for manufacturing to move into the province.
Alberta will spend $6 billion in 2016-17 on new infrastructure and more than $2 billion over the next two years on transportation infrastructure.
That’s money that could go toward better roads and bridges, as Alberta’s economy grows.
For Alberta’s aerospace industry, that means a big investment, with the province expected to spend more than half a billion dollars in that area in 2016.
The economic impact of these investments are significant.
Alberta and the other provinces that rely on the oil and gas industry to generate a portion of their revenues will see a significant uptick in their manufacturing sector.
With more skilled workers coming into the sector, companies like Boeing and Bombardier, which are the two biggest players in the industry, will see an increase in jobs.
As more people start coming to work for these companies, that will mean more jobs in their plants and in their warehouses.
With an investment like this, there are many potential benefits for Alberta, says Doug Porter, president of the Fraser Forum.
“It’s going to create more jobs and it’s going at a very rapid rate, which is great for Alberta,” he says.
“This is a very important opportunity for Alberta.”
While the manufacturing industry in Alberta has been seeing a lot more job growth over the years, it’s also growing in other ways.
For instance, more and more people are moving into the country for jobs in manufacturing.
About 20 per cent of the province currently has a worker on temporary foreign worker visas, which allows them to work at a company in Canada and then move on to permanent residence.
The other 60 per cent have an employment visa, which means they are allowed to work as a contractor for the company, or for another employer in Canada, depending on the industry.
In the last few years, the number on temporary visas has gone up in Alberta, as the number coming to the province for jobs has more than doubled.
While that’s not a new trend, Porter says the increase in temporary workers has been on a bigger scale than it has in the U: “The number of people coming to Alberta is a bit of a record, which, for a lot a while, was a record for the province.”
As more of Alberta’s industries get more international, the demand for manufacturing jobs will continue to grow.
It also means that the country is going to need more skilled labour in order to keep up with the growth of the economy.
That means companies will need to look at the supply chain to make sure that their products and services are going to people in Canada who can do those jobs.
That can be a challenge, says Fraser Institute President Doug Porter.
“There’s going, for example, a lot less manufacturing in the United States,” Porter says.
He points to Canada’s manufacturing industry as one example.
The United States has more manufacturing jobs per capita than any other country.
It has also been doing quite well in terms of manufacturing exports.
And as a result, the U, of course, is in the driver’s seat.
But Canada, he says, “has a lot going for it.”
The impact on jobs in Ontario A recent report from Statistics Canada shows that Ontario is the second-largest economy in Canada in terms a manufacturing sector behind Alberta.
It is also the second largest in the province in terms the number and percentage of manufacturing workers.
In 2016-2017, Ontario’s manufacturing employment was 7,939,000, compared to 9,9
