HARD-WORKING AND INNOVATIVE
The province’s population is highly educated, with 64.9% holding a post-secondary certificate or university degree. There are excellent post- secondary institutions in Alberta, which contribute to the fast-growing and youthful population, which is also highly diverse.

The SouthGrow region alone has a workforce of 120,645 and is forecasted to see most of its post- secondary students graduate in the fields of Trades and Technology, Health Sciences, and Business by 2028. These top three fields make up 60% of all post-secondary graduates.
