We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to Edmonton for the 50th Constitutional Convention of the Alberta Federation of Labour, happening from Thursday, April 27 to Sunday, April 30, 2017!

A lot has changed since our last Convention in 2015. For the first time in decades, we have a new provincial government laying out a progressive, worker-friendly vision for Alberta. The opportunities that come with this change is reflected in this year’s convention theme: This is Our Time: Unions & Alberta’s Progressive Future.

We are excited to have a fantastic lineup of speakers coming to our convention, including:

  • David Madland from the Centre for American Progress
  • Dr. Kathie Muir from the University of Adelaide
  • Kaylie Tiessen, from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives
  • Tina Keeper, actor and activist
  • Christina Gray, Minister of Labour
  • Hassan Yussuff, President of the Canadian Labour Congress
  • Diana Gibson, Policy Analyst with Policy Link
  • and more!

Interested in attending as a voting delegate? There is still time to register on our website!
