Seamless and Integrated Systems

The lives of Albertans with disabilities intersect with multiple programs, services and policy areas. Learn more about the issues and what we recommend the government do to maximize the opportunities created by these connections.

Prudent Investment

Investing in community disability services benefits the individuals receiving services, strengthens communities, and contributes to the provincial economy. Learn about the issues and what we recommend the government do to maximize this investment.

A professional, well-trained, and stable workforce

Human resource issues in the sector are chronic and urgent. Addressing them is not a quick fix but requires a comprehensive strategy encompassing wages, training, workforce development, and professional standards.
