Service Alberta Minister, Nate Glubish, responded to the completion of the acquisition by saying, “The Government of Alberta is committed to creating and diversifying in Alberta now. Every job is important as we strive to protect Albertans from the financial effects of the pandemic and as Lafarge’s work in our province ensures job security for more Albertans.”
