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:

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.
