Alberta NDP’s Rachel Notley says job creation tax credit to create 27,000 jobs

Alberta NDP Leader Rachel Notley says while the Progressive Conservatives have no plan to create jobs, her party does.

LETHBRIDGE — Alberta NDP Leader Rachel Notley says while the Progressive Conservatives have no plan to create jobs, her party does.

Notley says if her team forms government it will introduce a job creation tax credit.

The credit will help employers by refunding 10 per cent of each new employee’s salary to a maximum salary of $50,000.

Notley estimates the credit will create 27,000 jobs.

Job creation has been a key issue on the campaign trail so far, with Premier Jim Prentice saying he won’t hike Alberta’s corporate tax rate because it would cost thousands of jobs.

Alberta’s corporate tax sits at 10 per cent, the lowest in Canada.
