ADWA is sharing information on topics related to voting, elections, democratic processes and services from ADWA and other sources related to work done in Community Disability Services.  We will also list any election events that are occurring around the province as we become aware of them.

ADWA has no alliance with any political party in Alberta. We are a non-profit association that represents professionals who work in Community Disability Services. Part of what we do is provide information to our membership.

In preparation for Alberta’s spring election ADWA asked each registered provincial political party to submit their party response to the following questions:

  1. What policies has your party developed that relate directly to the Community Disability Service sector?
  2. How would you support the creation of a funding model that is stable, sustainable, and predictable?
  3. A main priority of ADWA is to help establish recognized competencies through a certification process. How would your party help ADWA and the Disability Service community achieve this?
  4. Would your party establish a Disability caucus and/or Advisory group to inform your party on disability issues?
  5. Is there any other information about your party that relates to the Community Disability Service workforce and our allies that you would like us to share?

As we receive responses, we will post them.  If you formally represent your political party and would like to submit your party responses, you may do so by clicking here.
