Alberta is committed to adopting an Arts Professions Act that is meaningful and relevant to artists.
We’ve gathered feedback on legislative and policy components being considered to verify they:
- recognize and raise awareness of the importance of the arts sector
- address some of the unique challenges artists face
The act will be modelled on the 2009 Saskatchewan Statute, which gives formal recognition to artists, their representative associations, their freedom of expression, and their economic and contractual rights.
Albertans provided their input through an online survey until October 3.
Your feedback will be used to inform future legislation.
