Are you ready for April 16th?

It’s the day Albertans will choose a new set of 87 lawmakers to represent them and set the direction of the province.

Time to get to know the candidates for your area and make an informed choice!

We’re here to help.

 

For each of the 87 constituencies or electoral districts in Alberta we have compiled a list of candidates, including their:

  • websites
  • social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)
  • campaign email addresses and phone numbers

 

STEP 1: KNOW YOUR CONSTITUENCY.

Don't know your constituency?  No problem!  Use the map links below to figure out your area.  

NOTE: If your location seems close to a constituency boundary, and you aren't quite sure which area you're in, then check out the more detailed maps provided in Step 2.

 

STEP 2: KNOW YOUR CANDIDATES.

Find your constituency area in the alphabetized list below to get to know the candidates for your area. 

From each of the 87 constituencies listed, one candidate will be elected as the next Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) to represent citizens in that area.

STEP 3: KNOW WHERE THE POLITICAL PARTIES STAND.

A candidate's affiliation with a political party indicates their broad ideological stance on major issues, and can influence the specific talking points they make on certain topics.

On March 26th, PCE published a blog article with a summary of education-related platform and announcements that had been released to date: 21 days to go: Party platforms & extra steps to make an impact

To search for each party’s full platform we encourage citizens to visit political party websites, available on the Elections Alberta website.
