Approved by the Alberta Government in 2010, the Alberta Alcohol Strategy (AAS) is intended to help prevent and reduce the harm associated with alcohol use by developing a culture of moderation. The AAS is based on Canadian and international research and incorporates best practices that have proven effective in other jurisdictions for preventing and responding to alcohol-related harm.
Albertans are concerned about the harmful effects of alcohol and the significant social and economic toll it takes on so many lives. Implementation of the AAS provides an opportunity to unify efforts in Alberta, bringing together key stakeholders to leverage existing work and coordinate action.
Lead partners for the strategy are the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC), Alberta Health Services (AHS) and Alberta Health and Wellness (AHW).
