Freedom to care

Alberta non-profits and their volunteers can now be more responsive to the needs of their communities.

Empowering non-profits

The Freedom to Care Act and its associated Alberta government programming aim to remove barriers for the province’s non-profits and support their key role in the delivery of important programs and services. At its heart, the Act empowers non-profits and their volunteers by providing them with more support to address their communities’ needs by:

  • making it easier for non-profits to navigate exemptions to their organizations within the government’s regulatory environment
  • providing individual volunteers with liability protections
Find existing regulatory exemptions for your non-profit, or apply for new ones.
Ensure your volunteers have liability protection and a defined set of responsibilities for their roles.
