Calgary Chamber of Commerce recommends expansion of postsecondary presence into downtown

The Calgary Chamber of Commerce has called for an expansion of the postsecondary presence in downtown Calgary as an investment in the area. A report released by the chamber outlines key opportunities for the improvement of downtown Calgary in order to better attract and retain talent and ensure that the area is recognized as a place for postsecondary training and access. Chamber President Deborah Yedlin said that more postsecondary institutions and faculties should be relocated downtown, such as key faculties from the University of Calgary or the Alberta University for the Arts. She further encourages investments in the Alberta Jobs Now program for reskilling and training, as well as for further evaluation of the skills needed in the labour market.
