Why Work Here

There are many reasons why Albertans, Canadians and Out-of-Country workers choose the HUB region to grow and develop their careers. Here are just a few.

Booming Economy – The Alberta HUB region is situated on the Cold Lake oil sands area, which is the second largest oil sands deposit in Canada and overlaps into the Athabasca oil sands area, which is the largest deposit in Canada. The Oil and Gas industry is driving major investment and demand for employees throughout the entire Alberta HUB region and across all industries. Did you know that every dollar invested in the Alberta oil sands creates about $8.00 worth of economic activity? For more economic benefits, visit oilsands.alberta.ca/economicinvestment.html.
