Council Governance - Alberta Human Services - Government of Alberta

Council Governance

The Premier’s Council on the Status of Persons with Disabilities (Council) was established in 1988 through the Premier’s Council on the Status of Persons with Disabilities Act (Act).

Legislation Update

On November 5, 2013, an amendment act was introduced to update the Premier’s Council legislation to reflect current issues, relationships and roles within government and the community.

Mandate and Roles

The roles and responsibilities of the Council, the Minister, and the Department are outlined in the Mandate and Roles document which is agreed upon and signed by the Minister and the Chair of the Council. The Mandate and Roles document is reaffirmed each year.

Code of Conduct

The Council’s Code of Conduct reflects its values and provides a framework to guide behaviour in line with the ethics, integrity and reputation of the Council.


The Council recruits members to vacant positions when required. The position description outlines the skills, experience, knowledge and diversity that is required for the Council so that a cross-disability perspective and the best possible advice can be provided to Government.
