Abstract

Alberta is banking on sizable investments in infrastructure as it looks to resuscitate an economy devastated by the double blow of an oil price crash and global pandemic. The fiscal injection announced in Alberta’s Recovery Planlifts infrastructure spending to $10 billion and will fund what Premier Jason Kenney calls the biggest build in Alberta’s history. Historic as it may be, the approach leaves women behind.
