PROMOTING UPGRADING IN ALBERTA
Rachel Notley and the NDP will deliver better value from Alberta’s resources by promoting upgrading and refining here at home. Our Plan:
Notley promotes value-added, fair resource royalties
Days before the election, Rachel Notley introduced a Private Members’ Bill to promote full and fair resource royalties in Alberta and encourage the creation of sustainable jobs by upgrading natural resources in the province.
Bill 209, the “Resource Owners Rights Act” (Commission to Safeguard Albertans’ Interests in Natural Resources Act),would establish an independent commission that would evaluate the long-term sustainable management of natural resources including royalty rates and upgrading raw resources to keep jobs in Alberta.
The commission would be required to report to Albertans annually on their return on royalties and on the proportion of resources that are processed in the province.
Rachel Notley and the NDP will increase access and reduce wait times for long-term care.
JOB CREATION TAX CREDIT
Rachel Notley and the NDP will reward job creators and support 27,000 new jobs for Alberta’s families.
An NDP government will introduce a Job Creation Tax Credit to reward businesses that create new jobs in Alberta.
While the PCs ship jobs to Texas, New Democrats have a targeted and proven plan to support the creation of new jobs here at home.
