What We Need

Parkinson Alberta is always looking for volunteers who represent geographic perspectives in Alberta and who will demonstrate excellence in their field of expertise and will bring to the Society a mix of leadership skills, care and vision critical to due diligence and good governance.  Emphasis will be on recruitment of candidates who have the time, interest in a health charity and experience to make a significant impact on the long-term performance of Parkinson Alberta.  If you would like to learn more about becoming a Board Member, please call us at 1-800-561-1911.

2016-2018 Strategic Plan 

It is with great pleasure we present Parkinson Alberta Society's 2016-2018 Strategic Plan. Over the course of several months the planning committee and CEO, John Petryshen, traveled throughout the province to clarify our priorities, goals, and responsibilities to ensure we move forward in delivering and achieving on our Mission and Vision of the Society.  I'd like to thank everyone from across the province for taking the time to get involved and provide us with your invaluable input.


Parkinson Alberta Society invites you to take part in our journey that will inspire people living well with Parkinson's today, and hope for a world without Parkinson's tomorrow.
