On April 2, Alberta’s government announced two new organizations that will support the development of the mental health and addiction system of care. The new mental health and addiction organization, Recovery Alberta, will be responsible for the delivery of mental health and addiction services currently delivered by Alberta Health Services (AHS).

Front line workers and service providers will continue to be essential to care for Albertans. To ensure stability of services to Albertans, there will be no changes to terms and conditions of employment for AHS Addiction and Mental Health staff transitioning to Recovery Alberta. Additionally, there will be no changes to grants or contracts for service providers currently under agreement with AHS upon establishment of Recovery Alberta.  

Minister Williams will be hosting four engagement sessions with AHS staff and service providers in April to share more information about Recovery Alberta and provide staff and service providers an opportunity to ask questions.  

AHS staff or service providers wishing to join any of these engagement sessions can register and submit their questions online.
