The Alberta Health Care Aide Directory

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 frontline healthcare and an important part of helping Albertans receive quality, person-centred care.

NEW! The Ministry of Health has extended the deadline for mandatory enrolment in the Directory from December 20, 2019 to January 31, 2020 for Health Care Aides (HCA) to submit an application to the Alberta HCA Directory.

What HCAs are Saying

Did you know it is mandatory for HCAs to enrol in the Directory?

Alberta Health has mandated that all Health Care Aides (HCAs) working for a publicly funded employer enrol in the Alberta HCA Directory. Please note that the mandatory enrolment deadline has been extended, as  indicated above.

Having all HCAs working for a 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.
