Health Care and Social Assistance
Caring for the complex needs of a population's health and well-being calls for many services. That's why the health care and social assistance industry consistently ranks among the top three industries for employment in Alberta. From public health nurses and social workers to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technicians and hospital administrators, jobs in this industry can take many forms. In 2015, an unemployment rate of 1.5% in this industry was among the lowest in the province.
