Disparity Campaign

Printable
    

Despite Alberta's enormous wealth, many are not benefitting. we have the most profound inequality of any Canadian province. This contributes to Alberta's social problems and increases the difficulties in fulfilling our responsibilities as social workers.

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.
