Is Alberta Calling? Is Alberta calling? by Disability Action Hall
For the undecided voter, what’s the difference?
Albertans are now making tougher choices between heat, food, medications, and rent. Since the pandemic, the affordability gap between purchasing power and poverty over the last three years has widened for many middle and lower-income Albertans now struggling to pay for basic needs.

Alberta economic review states there are over 4.6 million people who now call Alberta home, the highest growth rate in the country. Due to the strong growth rate, we are now reminding candidates to strike a better balance for Alberta's future by investing in our social safety net. This move will then aid in all Albertan's recovery and be in a better position to thrive: By improving affordable access to health and mental health care, food security, building and retaining more affordable, safe, accessible housing, increasing timely access to social services, having enough money to live, and good governance.
Here is to hoping after this election we can continue to help rebuild a province where all Albertans are proud to say, "This is our home."
For the undecided voters, we encourage you to visit the Alberta Parties at a glance using a poverty reduction lens “tool.” Good luck with the vote Alberta.
