Human Services Workforce Alliance - Alberta Human Services - Government of Alberta

Human Services Workforce Alliance

The Workforce Alliance was launched in April 2012 to address support for a stable and sustainable workforce that meets the needs of children, families and adults with disabilities. It consists of government representatives and service providers, who work together to create a long-term plan for the workforce. Areas of focus include:

  • Education of the workforce (post-secondary education)
  • Attraction of qualified staff
  • Retention of staff
  • Development (ongoing training and development for existing staff)
  • Culture within the sector

Service providers in the Alliance advocate on behalf of their sector, work to influence government decisions, and provide advice on how best to allocate the investments the government has committed in a fair and efficient way.
