Disparity Campaign


Alberta's prosperity has increased the gap between the haves and have nots. This gap contributes to Alberta's social problems and makes social work very difficult.

ACSW has taken a leadership role in stopping the growing income disparity between Alberta’s haves and have-nots. It has embarked on a campaign to raise awareness of the gap, offer solutions for arresting and closing it, and working with government to implement appropriate social policy changes.

  • Phase I of the campaign will raise awareness of Alberta’s disparity gap and the impact it has on social work.
  • Phase II will build upon the foundation of understanding and awareness created during Phase I and work to achieve positive change in social policies and programs.

E-mail Lori Sigurdson, Manager, Professional Affairs (lsigurdson@acsw.ab.ca) if you want to get involved or simply stay in touch with the campaign.
