Programs: Diversity


The Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability (ALACD) promotes inclusion and active living lifestyles for Canadians with a disability through communication and collaboration. The Alberta Recreation and Parks Association is proud to be a key partner in the Alberta Initiative of the ALACD. ARPA provides support and website hosting through a strategic partnership with the Alliance. Together, we connect individuals and groups with programs and services.

ALACD, a national non-profit organization, was established in 1989 to motivate and assist Canadians with a disability to become more physically active. It is built on an alliance of individuals, agencies, and national associations that facilitates and coordinates partnerships among the members of its network. There are over 100 partners and a growing network of close to a half million organizations who share the vision of a healthier, active Canadian disability population. Alberta is proud to be one of many provincial representatives.
