Mental Health and Addictions

Lack of support in the area of mental illness and addiction have been a growing concern for many years.  With the arrival of COVID-19 many experts are concerned about an 'echo pandemic' of mental health challenges.  From our research over the last year we have identified three areas we believe will make a signficant postive change in the mental health and wellness of all Albertans.   For free online training on various mental health concerns including Trauma Informed Care, Grief, Crisis Intervention and more please view our webinars under the "Get Involved - Training Resources" page.

Truth and Reconciliation

Many steps with one goal Our Truth & Reconcilation Research Action Team encompasses both Indigenous Elders and Non-Indigenous Leaders that continually examine steps we can take as a society to address the consequences of our colonial past.  On May 25th, Delegates at our Assembly voted to support a call for an Aboriginal Liason Office in every district of the Calgary Police Services.     

The Environment & The Green Line

As plans are made to re-start our economy the Environment team invites us to image a brighter climate future.  The Environment team, led by our member organization, the Climate Hub, is asking that the City of Calgary build for not just stimulus but climate through our Green Stimulus plan.

We Build Leaders

“I went to the training and discovered practical ways that I can build relationships and take action to bring about change in our city.”
