The Alberta Government is holding a number of online and in-person consultations around important issues such as provincial affordable housing strategies, the Worker's Compensation Review, and nursing care and home care services.

It is important that government hear from a wide variety of people and organizations on these issues, so we encourage you to participate in these consultations. Please note the deadlines for each consultation vary.

Nursing Care and Home Care: The Alberta government is asking residents, families, caregivers, and members of the public to share their thoughts on legislation related to access to nursing homes, home support services (e.g., light housekeeping, laundry), meal requirements, meeting the needs of caregivers and more. 

For more information, visit their website with links to two public surveys Albertans can access. (Online consultations are open until July 31, 2016)

WCB:  The government has set up an independent, three-member panel to conduct a comprehensive review of the workers’ compensation system, and is inviting the public to provide their thoughts in an online questionnaire or by written submission through their website. (Online consultations have now closed for this questionnaire)

Affordable Housing: The government is developing a strategy to improve the affordable housing system. Strategy development includes stakeholder engagement through regional meetings and public input through the on-line survey, here. (Online consultations have now closed for this questionnaire)
