Resources

The Alberta Continuing Care Association publishes a variety of publications each year, including Reports, Submissions to the Government, Letters to the Editor and White Papers. We also believe in sharing the best resources so that our members, and the greater community, have the opportunity to receive the most up-to-date information possible. Here you will find ACCA publications and various third party resources we hope will provide answers to questions about Continuing Care in Alberta.
