Community Conversations

Conversations with communities are at the heart of AHS' engagement philosophy. Whether through informal chats over coffee or large group events, we believe that when AHS and Albertans work together we achieve greater understanding, and reach better decisions.

As we celebrated AHS' 10 year anniversary in 2019 we sought input from our valued partners and community members through seventeen Community Conversations, hosted in partnerships with Health Advisory Councils (HACs) across Alberta.

AHS' Advisory Councils also launched a series of Community Conversations in the fall of 2020 to invite communities to engage, share information or participate in training that reflects the priorities identified by the HAC and AHS leadership in their region.

In-person Community Conversations were paused during the COVID-19 pandemic, but AHS' commitment to engaging communities continues. In the first year of AHS' response to the COVID-19 pandemic (March, 2020 through March, 2021) more than 222 virtual sessions were hosted providing information to, and engaging with, more than 12,000 Albertans.

Conversations continue as needs are identified. Please see below for a list of upcoming events and conversations.

    Take Survey
  • Thank you for participating in this survey. A new survey is open to get your input on AHS' E-newsletter moving forward.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about communication during COVID-19. We had 135 people, with equal representation from across the province, respond to the survey; this input helped inform our communication strategy with Albertans during COVID-19, and will continue to inform our approach moving forward.

    Below is a brief highlight of what we heard:

    • Most people (80%) feel as though they are receiving the right amount of information about COVID-19;
    • Alberta Health Services and the Government of Alberta are the main sources of information for Albertans, followed by the Government of Canada, municipalities, and friends and family;
    • Most people (26%) are receiving their information through direct emails, mainstream media or various websites; and
    • Most people (36 - 26%) would like to receive information through direct emails from AHS, information on the AHS website.

    As Alberta moves into its' relaunch and we continue to adjust to our new normal, AHS would like to continue to provide Albertans with timely information related to health and wellness. Please take a moment to complete our new survey below and share your input on what information you need.
