Community Engagement & Communications

What We Do

This team of communications specialists reaches out to communities across the province to engage Albertans in a meaningful, authentic way – to learn about the unique needs of their communities, to gather public feedback before decisions affecting health care delivery are made, or to simply share information about available programs and services that address community concerns.

AHS Community Engagement and Communications is also responsible for a number of high-profile health campaigns – both annual and in response to emerging issues – that connect Albertans with the urgent health information they need. We make sure this information is delivered however Albertans want it: online, in print, on TV, on radio or through advertising.

Community Engagement

We have a team dedicated to making sure AHS is in the communities, talking to the right people at the right time and for the right reasons. Community input and feedback lets us better address the health needs of Albertans and bring decision-making to the local level.

AHS Media Relations provides context and timely, credible information in response to questions and commentary in the public interest. The Proactive Issues Management team ensures media responses are up to date, clear, accurate and consistent. Meanwhile, the Proactive Media Relations team works hard to promote and highlight the good work we do in providing quality accessible health care to all Albertans.
