About This Site

Covenant Health acknowledges that the land we call Alberta is on Treaty 6, 7 and 8 territory and the traditional home of many Indigenous Peoples, including the Blackfoot, Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Tsuu T’ina and Métis.

We recognize and give thanks to the many Indigenous Peoples who have cared for these lands for generations, and to the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and who have gone before us.

Imagine a community where everybody recognizes that we all have a role to play in supporting each other in times of crisis and loss.

This website is designed to help Albertans have conversations about living and dying well and plan appropriately for the future.

The menu on this page organizes the information you need in four easy to follow sections. Each section includes a guide, featured resources and links to other websites.

Completely new to advance care planning?
