On November 8, 2023, the Premier of Alberta and the Minister of Health announced a massive restructuring of the current healthcare system and emergency medical services (EMS) in Alberta. The restructuring of the health care system is meant to overcome challenges and deliver adequate care to all Albertans.
The changes will focus on four priority provincial sectors: primary care, acute care, continuing care, and mental health and addiction, with the goal of ensuring that all Albertans receive the best care within a single, fully integrated, high-functioning system.
The Province committed to engaging with healthcare workers and the public, to gather further insights into the successes, challenges, and strengths of the current health care system. In-person engagement sessions are now open for registration.
A list of engagement sessions and the registration form are available here.
