What are we doing?

Alberta Health Services (AHS) is developing a Provincial Advisory Council (PAC) focused on healthcare for all sexual and gender minority (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and 2 Spirit or LGBTQ2S+) communities.

The work of this PAC will help to create a safer and more welcoming healthcare environment for LGBTQ2S+ patients and families. The PAC can also advise on strategies to address stigma within the healthcare system and inform how AHS supports employees who identify and work with these communities.

What are PACs?

  • made up of members of the public who represent all geographic areas of the province including urban and rural areas; healthcare professionals; and stakeholders in the Council's area of focus.
  • each of these Councils have a direct reporting relationship to AHS Senior Leadership and the AHS Board

AHS currently has three PACs: Addiction and Mental Health; Cancer Care; and Seniors and Continuing Care.
