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 people with diverse and cultural backgrounds 
have a voice in healthcare in order to improve healthcare experiences of for all Albertans. One way 
to achieve this is through Advisory Councils, where members represent diverse perspectives within 
communities across Alberta regardless of gender, race, age or religious beliefs and experiences. 
These Councils provide insights and input on healthcare 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 (HAC) 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 (PAC) made up of public members from across the 
province who have lived experiences within 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. HAC members are appointed to 
three-year terms. PAC members are appointed to two-year or three-year terms.
