 INTERVALS - Spring 2018



FACT-AB met with the Associate Minister of Health, Brandy Payne. She expressed the government’s continued support for regulating counselling, but stated again that it is not a priority for legislative resources in the next year.

 This is not acceptable. 

We have almost 4000 counsellors who are members of FACT-AB, but only 1200 letters to government have been sent so far.  We need EVERY counsellor who belongs to an association of FACT-AB to take just 30 seconds to click to send the message. We ALSO need you to SHARE THIS LINK with friends, family, organizations, and colleagues. Let them know that anyone can call themselves a counsellor in Alberta, without any education or training, and that they can help keep vulnerable people safe, by giving just 30 seconds of their time. 

 We NEED 5000 letters very soon…the window is closing for the NDP to add regulation to their legislative agenda for this year.  We have unprecedented political and public support and we have done the work…now is the time for the government to commit! 

 Now it the time to act.  Please become active in putting out this link in your Facebook, sending it out to other professionals, friends and family members who reside in Alberta!
