Government of Alberta Announces New Initiative for Publicly Funded Spaces Without Additional Capital

Sep 01, 2020

Today the Government of Alberta announced an initiative for new publicly funded spaces without additional capital funding in communities across the province identified as priority. ACCA Board Chair Jennifer McCue was present at the announcement which can be viewed online here: https://www.alberta.ca/news.aspx.

“This is a smart and sensible approach that will benefit Alberta seniors in communities across the province, particularly given the economic challenges that we are all faced with and a swelling senior population with increasingly complex needs. Having a Continuing Care system that provides safe, quality care and supports to Albertans through partnerships with willing and committed non-profit, faith-based and independent providers alongside their public counterparts just makes sense,” said Jennifer McCue.

The ACCA has appreciated the ongoing collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Alberta Health Services and extends our sincerest thanks to Premier Kenney and Minister Shandro as we work together to create the best possible continuing care industry, ensuring all continuing care operations are funded equitably and sufficiently across the province. Today’s announcement is a welcome first step towards that goal and the ACCA looks forward to continued collaboration through future phases of this important initiative.
