With the world’s third largest oil & gas reserves, Alberta has long been a leading developer and exporter of petroleum industry technologies. This has provided the springboard for a tech industry that has expanded far beyond oil & gas.

Alberta tech companies are steadily flexing their muscle on the world stage, and attracting international attention for a diverse range of innovative technologies. It is home to the internationally renowned Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute and Google Deep Mind’s first research base outside of the UK.

The province has long had one of Canada’s highest standards of living and lowest tax regimes. It is a market that is too important to ignore.
