    Event Description:
    Alberta's Economy in 2021: Tools to help make sense of it all
    It's fair to say that there's never been a year like 2020. But what lies ahead in 2021? With a great deal of uncertainty still weighing down the economy, it's difficult to predict how and when it will recover. What tools can help us understand the new environment that will emerge? And what will the new economy look like?

    Join the Fort McMurray Chamber of Commerce for the first networking event of 2021, featuring  a keynote from Vice President and Chief Economist for ATB Financial, Todd Hirsch.
