Alberta Health Services Advisory Councils

Advisory Councils

Building a better health system with the voice of our community

Alberta Health Services (AHS) is committed to ensuring that people with diverse and cultural backgrounds have a voice in healthcare in order to improve the experiences of healthcare for all Albertans. One way to achieve that is through Advisory Councils where members represent diverse perspectives within our communities across Alberta regardless of gender, race, age or religious beliefs and experiences. These Councils provide insights and input on health care service delivery, priorities and programs to the Board of Directors and AHS leadership. They bring forward feedback from the public to support AHS’ strategic direction.

Health Advisory Council members are passionate about healthcare, interested in listening to people and providing feedback to AHS. Members reside within their Council’s geographic area. Visit the website to view the Health Advisory Council map and find your Council area.

There are four Provincial Advisory Councils made up of public members from across the province who have lived experiences with their area of focus:

  • Cancer
  • Addiction and Mental Health (AMH)
  • Seniors and Continuing Care (SCC); and
  • Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression (SOGIE)

Advisory Council members may serve to a maximum of six years. Health Advisory Council members are appointed to three-year terms. Provincial Advisory Council members are appointed to two-year or three-year terms.
