About Us

Our Vision is to make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities and special needs through passion and commitment.

Our Mission is to provide resources and services -through community support and collaboration- that enhance the quality of life for individuals with disabilities and special needs.

We've served Albertans with disabilities and special needs since 1951. They connect with us for direct services, programs, advocacy and public education. Whether the need is mobility or accessibility, we're here to bridge the gap in Alberta’s social safety net for people with disabilities.

Our dedication to the cause includes:

  • helping achieve full potential
  • helping with accessibility
  • helping with mobility
  • helping with future independence. 
  • helping seniors achieve open access to communities they helped build.

We also fund disability solutions through financial assistance, summer camp, research, advocacy, public and consumer education. With your help, we provide solutions and change lives. When all other sources of funding have failed, we're here to ensure life is positively accessible.

In addition, we provide fully accessible facilities including Easter Seals Camp Horizon ‘for the kids’ and Easter Seals McQueen Residence for adults.

Easter Seals Alberta is a provincial licensed member of Easter Seals Canada and protects the intellectual property of the Easter Seals mark and assists to coordinate national programs and fundraising opportunities for the provincial partners. Visit Easter Seals Canada for more information about the national organization.

Did You Know Part 1

In 1951 Canadian Mothers began marches such as one led by Canada’s first female Cabinet Minister, Ellen Fairclough, MP for Hamilton West. As a result of their efforts, the research of Dr. Jonas Salk was well funded, creating the historic made-in-Canada cure for polio. Today, Easter Seals Alberta funds vital programs and services for adults with disabilities and special needs.
