Alberta Private Sector Employer Advisory Council

Alberta’s Private Sector Employer Advisory Council was formed to create more employment opportunities for Albertans with disabilities. Welcoming more people with disabilities into our workplaces will provide Albertans with opportunities to have meaningful work, learn new skills, build new relationships and increase their incomes. The voluntary council includes employers from across industry sectors throughout the province. Council members will meet regularly to discuss the challenges, identify solutions, and help steer the development of Alberta’s Employment First Strategy.
