The Autism Society of Edmonton Area (ASEA) helps families and communities embrace and support people on the autism spectrum throughout their lives.
The Alberta Disabilities Forum (ADF) Mental Health Working Group is researching mental health issues from a cross-disability perspective. A survey has been developed to gather information on the experiences and concerns of people with disabilities regarding barriers to mental health services and treatments in the province. The results of the survey will be used in our vision paper, which will address the challenges of attaining mental health well-being for Albertans with various disabilities, and what they face through different stages of their life spans.

In Edmonton we are proud to bring together the many individuals, organizations and governments associated with persons with disabilities for one day of celebrating arts and theatre within Edmonton.
Coming soon to a town near you!
December 3 is International Day of Persons with Disabilities. On this day, communities across Alberta host fun and informative local events to celebrate people with disabilities and the value of building communities that are accessible and inclusive for all.
This year, 11 communities in Alberta are hosting events between November 29 and December 3 to celebrate this important day. Check Alberta Human Services' events calendar to find a celebration near you.
At the Edmonton and Calgary events, the Premier’s Council on the Status of Persons with Disabilities Awards will also be presented to Albertans who have worked hard to promote the full inclusion of people with disabilities in our schools, workplaces, and communities.
