Our communities need your help.

Recovery begins at home, on your street, and in your neighbourhood. A strong Alberta recovery is one with a plan to support the essential services we rely on every day while making sure that no one is left behind. We are Alberta’s nonprofits, your partners in community recovery. 

The Community Recovery Now campaign calls for the Government of Alberta to invest 3.5% of the Alberta Recovery Plan or $350 million into a Community Recovery Fund targeted to support Mental Health; Diversity, Equity, Inclusion; Youth Engagement; and Digital Transformation. This is an investment in lives and livelihoods that will create 4,500 jobs in communities across Alberta. Nearly 3x more jobs than similar investments in capital infrastructure, jobs for women and racialized people.

Alberta’s nonprofits need a seat at the table as supported partners in the government’s recovery plan. When emergency supports are gone and when the dust finally settles on this pandemic, Albertans will be relying on our nonprofits to provide the critical services and support to ensure our communities continue to a full recovery and remain a strong and vibrant part of our future.  

Sign the petition on this page to tell the Premier, the Leader of the Official Opposition, and your local MLA to ensure that they include community in the provincial government’s pandemic recovery plans.

Community Recovery Now is a nonpartisan effort led by the Calgary Chamber of Voluntary Organizations. The campaign and materials are not intended to endorse or oppose candidates or political parties.
