“We are extremely proud of the work that these men and women do day in and day out to help Alberta’s most vulnerable citizens,” said Sandra Jansen, Human Services Critic and MLA for Calgary-North West. “Social work is an area of policy that is critical to ensuring Alberta has a strong, socially progressive foundation. The theme for this year’s Social Work Week is Embracing a Diverse and Changing World, which is exactly the direction that Alberta needs to take going into the future. The impact social workers have in our province changes the lives of Albertans on a daily basis and we are grateful for your contributions.”
"Albertans have been proud of our strong and inclusive education system, the tremendous strides made in wellness, and great efforts to end homelessness” said Dave Rodney, MLA for Calgary-Lougheed and Advocate for Advanced Education and Indigenous Relations. “Progressive Conservatives are committed to facing these and other complex social issues head-on, and we look forward to working with the many individuals and organizations who provide these critical front line services--as we continue to find solutions together in the future."
