ACDS advocates strongly for issues that affect the Community Disability Services (CDS) sector. We are viewed by the Government of Alberta and the CDS sector as a credible and trusted voice. We influence public policy by supporting our members to have a collective voice, conducting sector-specific research, and offering regular updates on policy and legislative changes impacting the sector.
CDS Sector Priorities - CDS Sector Priorities 2023 – 2026 (July 2023). ACDS has highlighted seven priorities to guide our advocacy work for the CDS sector and corresponding collaborative opportunities with the Government of Alberta.
The ACDS Government Relations Committee supports ACDS to develop a strong collective voice to engage in government relations and non-partisan advocacy for effective public policies in the disability sector.
