The Fraser Institute will release a new report examining Alberta's
Heritage Fund on Monday, March 4 at 6:30 a.m. (Mountain).

    The report, Reforming Alberta's Heritage Fund: Lessons from Alaska and
Norway, examines the history and structure of the Alberta Heritage
Savings Trust Fund, which was established in 1976 to save resource
revenues for future generations, and compares its performance to similar
funds established in Alaska and Norway. 

    The report also calculates the present-day value of the Heritage Fund if
it operated under rules similar to those governing the funds of Alaska
and Norway.

    A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwire
at 6:30 a.m. (Mountain) on Monday, March 4.

    The full report will also be available as a free PDF download at
