The Alberta government has setup a new website to provide jobseekers with information on wages and qualifications.

Two new online services — CERTinfo and WAGEinfo — show certification and registration requirements for more than 60 occupations, and wage and salary ranges for 497 occupations.

“We can help jobseekers make informed choices about wage expectations and job requirements before they move across the province, the country or the ocean to find work in Alberta,” said Clint Dunford, Alberta Human Resources and Employment Minister. “With Alberta’s shortage of skilled workers, it is important to provide as much information as possible to attract the right people with the right skills and to let people know what kind of training and experience are required for certain occupations.”
