The Alberta Health Care Aide Directory

COVID-19 Info

The Alberta Health Care Aide Directory provides information on Alberta’s largest group of care providers in continuing care.

Health Care Aides (HCAs) are important and respected members of Alberta’s front-line healthcare and an important part of helping Albertans receive quality, person-centred care.

The Alberta Health Care Aide Directory:

  • Serves as a central resource for Alberta HCAs to get information, news and updates
  • Confirms that HCAs working in Alberta have successfully attained the core competencies necessary to provide safe, proficient care for patients and clients
  • Educates employers, educators, stakeholders and Albertans about HCAs’ role in healthcare
  • Acts as a database to collect information on HCA employment necessary for workforce planning

Enrol in the HCA Directory

All Health Care Aides (HCAs) working for a publicly funded employer need to ensure continued enrolment on the Alberta HCA Directory.

Having all HCAs working for publicly funded employers enrol in the Directory will provide Alberta Health and its partners with good workforce data, which will support the development of health human resource plans. More importantly, it will provide public assurance that Alberta’s HCAs are competent.
