The province has unveiled a new advisory council on economic recovery for Alberta, a high-powered group that includes former prime minister Stephen Harper.

The 12-member panel, led by economist Jack Mintz, will be advising Premier Jason Kenney on issues surrounding the province's economic recovery as it grapples with a severe downturn caused by the COVID-19 outbreak and slumping energy prices.

Aside from the former prime minister, the group will also include business leaders such as WestJet co-founder Clive Beddoe, ATCO chief executive Nancy Southern and Mac Van Wielingen, founder of ARC Financial.
