The Alberta Health Care Aide Directory
The new 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 frontline healthcare and an important part of helping Albertans receive quality, person-centred care.
The Alberta Health Care Aide Directory aims to:
- Serve as a central resource for Alberta HCAs to get information, news and updates
- Confirm that the HCA has successfully attained the core competencies necessary to provide safe, proficient care for the patients and clients of Alberta
- Educate employers, educators, stakeholders and Albertans about HCAs’ role in healthcare
- Act as a database to collect information on HCA employment necessary for workforce planning
Consider self-enroling in the Alberta Health Care Aide Directory if you are a HCA and are one of the below:
- Working in a health care setting, regardless of job title and have attained one of the core competencies
- Student currently enrolled in a recognized Alberta educational institution
- Unemployed, although have a HCA Certificate from a recognized Alberta educational institution and living in Alberta
The Directory has been live since May 1, 2017.
