About the Association
The Association is the professional organization that guides and advances provincial education initiatives and the teaching profession overall in Alberta. The Association is the voice for Alberta’s public, separate and francophone teachers, while also advising the government on matters of educational policy. Since 1918, the Association has been proud to advocate for the best public education possible in Alberta.
The provincial association and its locals perform both union and professional functions. As a union, it assists with collective agreement application and advises teachers on employment matters. Professionally, the Association also oversees the professional conduct of teachers and aids in their continuing education and development through the provision of workshops and conferences.
Our experienced staff are essential to the successful development and delivery of the programs and services that the Association provides.
