For years, the alis.alberta.ca website has been assisting Albertans in finding careers that suit their skills, personalities, and life goals by offering practical information on over 550 occupations. Each occupational profile provides information like educational requirements, salary ranges, day to day duties, responsibilities, and working conditions.
