  Government of Alberta's Capital Investment Tax Credit

As part of the Alberta Jobs Plan, the Alberta government has invested $70 million in Alberta's Capital Investment Tax Credit (CITC) for manufacturing, processing and tourism infrastructure that will spur economic diversification and job creation. The CITC is a 2-year program that provides a non-refundable tax credit valued at 10% of a corporation’s eligible capital expenditures, up to $5 million. 

The CITC encourages companies to make timely capital investments by returning a percentage of the company’s costs, including the purchase of machinery, equipment and buildings. If your company is considering expansion by investing in new capital machinery, equipment, or buildings, please consider this opportunity.  

For more information on the CITC, including eligibility requirements, please visit the CITC website. Questions can also be sent to CITC.program@gov.ab.ca as well.

Please note, the application period intake for the CITC will only be open till September 8th, 2017.

Alberta Construction Association News
On Wednesday August 16, the Government of Alberta announced it is launching a review of the province’s occupational health and safety system. This comes on the heels of a review of the WCB and Labour Code.

Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act sets the minimum standards for workplace health and safety, and outlines the roles and responsibilities of employers and employees. This becomes the third piece of major legislation the current government have decided needed to be revised.

Roundtable sessions with employers, employees, academics and health and safety associations will occur from September 5 – 15.

You can read the announcement here.

Unique Interchange, First of Its Kind in Canada, Opens in South Calgary
The diverging-diamond interchange, as the style is known, is now open to traffic at Macleod Trail and 162nd Avenue after two years of construction. Drivers might have a sense of dislocation, as they move from the right side of the road to the left on the bridge, which allows drivers to make left-hand turns without having to cross traffic. This should reduce the number of collisions, compared with more traditional interchanges. It will also help with traffic flow, according to the city. Read more
