Premier’s Advisory Task Force on Ukraine

Members will identify ways to support Ukrainian evacuees coming to Alberta with their financial, physical and spiritual needs.


The Premier’s Advisory Task Force on Ukraine will engage with Alberta’s Ukrainian community, not-for-profits and organizations that are assisting Ukrainian newcomers to ensure the appropriate settlement supports are available. 

The task force will identify ways Alberta’s government can further help Ukrainian evacuees settle and integrate into communities across Alberta.

This work will ensure the thousands of Ukrainians who have fled the war in their homeland have a smooth and welcoming transition to Alberta.
