In each of our member regions, the executive of the PCDC branches have initiated discussions on funding gaps and sector needs with Community & Social Services and Labour representatives. These discussions generally occur through coordinated local meetings; typically monthly. Alberta Government representatives attend local PCDC meetings to update the group on new developments, trends, or changes that may have an influence or impact the region. This enables us to stay current on information, allows us to make individual company decisions and is a platform to share ideas and potential interventions.
Local planning also involves promoting local education and employment training opportunities to our clients, funders, and the wider community.
Regional social activities and networking opportunities vary, and are organized by local PCDC members. Events may include, Connections, Holiday Breakfasts, Lunch & Learns, Professional Development etc.
Government Policy Advocacy
PCDC members work collaboratively with provincial funders to discuss current government policies, recommendations and share best practices.
