Business Impact Research

As Alberta moves into the relaunch phase of its COVID-19 economic response, 80 per cent of businesses expect a slow economic recovery—a six-point increase since April. 

This figure is the result of an online business impact survey that the Alberta Chambers of Commerce (ACC), Community Futures Alberta, and Economic Developers Alberta carried out between May 14 and May 22, 2020—aligning with the first nine days of Alberta's economic reopening. It was the second survey of an ongoing COVID-19 and low oil prices research project, with the first survey taking place between April 10 and April 26, 2020.
