Empowering non-profits

The Freedom to Care Act and its associated Government of Alberta programming aims to remove barriers for the province’s non-profits and support their key role in the delivery of important programs and services.

Volunteers are one of the most valuable resources for building and strengthening our communities. And the Freedom to Care Act acknowledges this 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

At its heart, the Freedom to Care Act empowers non-profits and their volunteers by providing them with more support to address their communities’ needs.
