Alberta is investing $1 billion in oilsands bitumen upgrading to get a bigger bang for the buck on its oil.
Premier Rachel Notley announced that the money will be used for loan guarantees and grants to attract anywhere from two to five partial oil upgrading facilities resulting in $5 billion in private investment.
"This process will help us get full value from our resources, attract billions in investment and create thousands of jobs right here in Alberta," Notley said.
Alberta's economy will grow 2.8 per cent this year, according to a forecast released recently by the Conference Board of Canada.
Alberta will join B.C., Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador as the fastest growing provincial economies in 2018, the report said.
Employment in Alberta is expected to grow by 1.7 per cent, as the unemployment rate will drop to about six per cent, the report said.
Cities will play an integral role in curbing climate change in the coming years, Edmonton councillors heard at a special meeting ahead of hosting an international climate conference.
Electric buses, public transportation, energy efficient buildings and reducing garbage are some of the initiatives that will drive change, councillors heard.
The Alberta government is expanding its energy rebate program to help the restaurant and hospitality sectors become more energy efficient.
Environment Minister Shannon Phillips recently announced the province is increasing the maximum rebate in the Business, Non-Profit and Institutional Energy Savings Program from $60,000 to $100,000 for those who install energy-efficient projects.

Could Medicine Hat see increased petrochemical development? That's a question the City said it’s asking the province following a report on energy diversification.
In it, the Energy Diversification Advisory Committee suggests the Alberta should double it's petrochemical output over the next 20 years.

Industrial Heartland companies could benefit from the province's $1 billion technology support for partial upgrading.
The billion-dollar announcement can be broken down into $800 million loan guarantees and $200 million for grants. That money will be available over eight years, starting in 2019-2020.
And companies should take advantage of the support, said Mark Plamondon, Alberta's Industrial Heartland executive director.
The new national infrastructure bank might be a new way to finance a new arena in Calgary.
That was the tantalizing prospect suggested by former Calgary mayor Dave Bronconnier recently, when he told CBC News host Rob Brown it's conceivable the new arena might be considered eligible for support from the new $35 billion infrastructure bank.
Bronconnier is one of 10 board members of the bank, which will be used to leverage private funding, with a particular eye to partnering with pension funds to help finance what he says is $600 billion worth of infrastructure across the country.
