Earlier this month, Statistics Canada released its labour force survey for April, the agency's monthly household survey that aspires to assess the health of the Canadian economy. That survey offered up some positive indicators for Alberta: jobs in the province were up by nearly 16,000, while the province's unemployment rate dipped to its lowest level since 2015. Those numbers, said Doug Schweitzer, Alberta's minister for jobs, economy and innovation, were reflective of a plan well-executed, and

A rematch three years in the making is the most important game of the season so far for the Vancouver Whitecaps, says head coach Vanni Sartini. The club knows it must beat Cavalry FC in the second round of the Canadian Championship on Wednesday in order to advance — and Vancouver's record against the Canadian Premier League side isn't exactly positive. The 'Caps were heavily favoured when they came up against Cavalry in the 2019 tournament. But Calgary stunned with a 2-1 aggregate win, ousting t
