CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - March 30, 2016) -  On Thursday, March 31, the Fraser Institute will release a study on Alberta's provincial government debt.

The study, How Much, How Fast?: Estimating Debt Accumulation in Alberta through 2019/20, spotlights Alberta's net debt position, the reasons behind the debt, the dramatic change in the province's financial position since 2007/08, and the many significant risks that could easily cause debt accumulation to be much higher than currently projected.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on Thursday, March 31 at 5:30 a.m. (Eastern).
