The Compassionate Care Benefit Gets Extended
We received good news today from the Government of Canada Budget 2015 announcement. The Compassionate Care Benefit has been officially extended from six to 26 weeks. This is a really important step forward to support caregivers who are caring for a loved one at home. We thank the federal government for their commitment to the extension of the CCB.

Are you a Volunteer?
The ALS Society of Alberta is looking for volunteers to help our WALK Committees. Every year, with the support of the Society, volunteers put on fabulous walks all across Alberta. We really do have great volunteers, and we wouldn’t be able to have these walks without them!
Edmonton, Camrose and Red Deer have a current need for more volunteers to help with their upcoming WALKs. From being on the committee to just volunteering the day of the event, there are opportunities for every variation of volunteer.
We really do have the best volunteers, and we hope to see YOU soon!
The ALS Society of Alberta is delighted to announce a wonderful new partnership! Mikael Backlund of the Calgary Flames has chosen the ALS Society of Alberta as one of his charities of choice!
