We invite you to our 2023 Annual General Meeting on Saturday, June 10 at 1:00 pm!

With the provincial election behind us, this year's AGM will be an important opportunity for us to gather and discuss what comes next for health care. Join Friends of Medicare and our panel of experts as they share where the future of public health care in Alberta needs to go, followed by the usual AGM business.

The AGM is free and open to the public, but only members in good standing of Friends of Medicare will be able to run for positions on our board, vote, and participate in the discussion. Get your membership or renew for 2023 at 

Elections will be held for two Board of Directors positions for the upcoming year. Nominations may be accepted in writing by mail to 601-12323 Stony Plain Rd NW, T5N3Y5 or by email to [email protected].
