Alberta's 50 Most Influential The Next 10
Jul 1, 2014

by Alberta Venture Staff

They come from all over the map, literally and figuratively. They come from Lethbridge and Grande Prairie; Fort McMurray and everywhere in between. They’re teachers and politicians, bankers and entrepreneurs. Some of them will be names you recognize, some you won’t. The one thing they have in common is that each has had an uncommon influence on Alberta – and beyond, in many cases – in the past year. They are Alberta’s 50 Most Influential People for 2014, and we’re pleased to bring you their stories

  1. Shawn says:

    Interesting that Nenshi isn’t on this list?!?!

  2. Anita Lake says:

    13 women. 26%.
    Up from 24% women in 2013.

    Something is wrong here. I do not know whether it is the insight and values of those making this list, or if is simply reflecting the insight and values of Alberta, but for something as open to interpretation as “influence” to be so solidly leaning to one gender is not right.
