Alberta Health Act
In January 2010, the Minister's Advisory Committee on Health recommended that Alberta establish a single piece of legislation – the Alberta Health Act – to set the overall direction for the province's publicly-funded health system. Subsequently, MLA Fred Horne was appointed by government to lead a public consultation process asking about core components of the proposed Alberta Health Act, and what that Act should do for the publicly-funded health system. CARNA CEO Mary-Anne Robinson served on the eight-member advisory committee established by Horne to assist in the consultation.
