Who We Are

We are dedicated to realizing the full potential of Alberta’s abundant natural resources by expanding and diversifying Alberta’s resource manufacturing industries.

The Resource Diversification Council is a non-profit association compromised of industry, post-secondary, and labour leaders who share a mutual interest in advancing Alberta’s resource value added sector.

Proposed Projects

With over $22 billion of proposed projects, our members are ready to capitalize on the rising global demand for petrochemical projects while creating tens of thousands of high-paying jobs, developing new skills for Albertans, and building resilient communities across Alberta.

Our Members

Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors is compromised of senior executives in industry, post-secondary, and labour. Our industry board members make multi-billion dollar investment decisions and bring a unified voice to government for how to best move the value-added industry forward, while our post-secondary and labour board members ensure that Alberta is properly developing the workforce of tomorrow, today.
