ARPA Political Advocacy - NDP Response

In the lead-up to the 2019 Alberta Election, the ARPA, in partnership the Alberta Association of Recreation Facility Personnel (AARFP), sent a letter to the major political parties encouraging them to include several concepts in each party's platforms.

You can read our platform recommendations here.

The Alberta NDP is the first party in the 2019 Alberta Election to submit a response to our platform recommendations. You can read their full response letter here.

We hope to hear back from the other Alberta political parties on these recommendations before the 2019 Alberta Election, and we will update you on any and all responses as they are received. 

Together, our organizations’ memberships exceed 3,000 professionals, practitioners, academics and businesses in all corners of Alberta, and they can be found in urban, rural and northern municipalities, indigenous communities, post-secondary institutions and other Not­ For-Profit organizations. We believe that the concepts we provided are critical to improving the lives of all Albertans. 

If you have any questions about these concepts or our governmental advocacy in general, please contact Ramin Ostad, Communications Coordinator
