Health Care and Social Assistance
Caring for the needs of a population's health and well-being calls for many services. That's why the health care and social assistance industry ranks among the top three industries for employment in Alberta year after year. 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 2016, an unemployment rate of 1.3% in this industry was one of the lowest in the province.
