Financial support for coal workers coming

Municipal Affairs Minister Deron Bilous

Workers affected by the province’s decision to phase-out coal expect to find out what support will be coming their way as they transition to other jobs.

An announcement is being made by Minister of Economic Development Deron Bilous and Minister of Labour Christina Gray in Edmonton around 11 a.m. Friday.

The government’s advisory panel on coal communities has been gathering feedback from those affected for the past few months.

A report on how best to support workers by that panel has yet to be released.

The province has mandated that coal-fired electricity generation be phased out by 2030.
