We need and value the Indigenous Peoples who are part of Alberta Health Services (AHS).
They lend an important perspective in all settings including clinical, corporate, cultural, and more. It's important that our workforce reflects the people we serve and we're committed to building an Indigenous workforce to improve health outcomes and patient experience for all Albertans. AHS is proud of the many opportunities and paths that can lead to a fulfilling career in healthcare for Indigenous Peoples across our province.
We can answer questions about future career paths, help you build your candidate profile, and provide feedback on your resume.

AHS acknowledges that its services are provided on the territories of Treaty 6, Treaty 7 and Treaty 8; the 8 Métis Settlements and the Métis Nation of Alberta. We also recognize the Indigenous Peoples who dwell in urban centres across this land. These territories are the home for many Indigenous Peoples, including the Anishinabe, Blackfoot, Cree, Dene, Inuit, Métis, Stoney Nakoda Sioux, and the Tsuut'ina.
We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we dedicate ourselves to moving forward in partnership with Indigenous Peoples in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
In Talent Acquisition we take seriously our responsibility under the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's call to action number 23, for all levels of government to increase the number of Indigenous professionals working in the healthcare field and ensure the retention of Indigenous health-care providers.
