Advocacy: We believe in the rights of all Albertans to have equitable access to hospice palliative and end-of-life-care.

Teamwork: We encourage participation through the building of partnerships,
collaboration and innovation.
The Alberta Hospice Palliative Care Association recognizes the traditional land of the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples whose elders have walked this land before us and those persons with whom we share this land today. We are grateful to work, live and play upon this territory together and for the ability to learn from the traditional peoples of these lands as we move forward together in reconciliation.
The AHPCA team affirms our commitment to and responsibility in improving relationships between nations and to improving our own understanding of local Indigenous peoples and their cultures.
We also acknowledge all First Nations, Métis, and Inuit persons that reside away from their traditional communities, but who still live across Alberta.
