Premier names new Parliamentary Secretary, released by Alberta on 21 March 2024

Good day ladies and gentlemen, this is IRC news, I am Joy Stephen, a certified Canadian Immigration practitioner, and I bring to you this Provincial News Bulletin from the province of Alberta. This recording originates from the Polinsys studios in Cambridge, Ontario.

  Alberta’s government is working to improve health outcomes for Albertans to ensure everyone can access the health care they need, when and where they need it. This is being done by refocusing the entire health system. Work has been underway since fall 2023.

From the beginning of the process, consultation with Alberta’s health care workers has been vital. Alberta’s government has been clear that throughout the refocusing process, and as the system changes, health care workers must be empowered in their roles. To help with this work, the Premier has named Chelsae Petrovic, who has more than 13 years’ experience as a licensed practical nurse and is the MLA for Livingstone-Macleod, as the Parliamentary Secretary for Health Workforce Engagement.
Alberta’s health care workers perform critical, life-saving work every day and are the heart of the province’s health care system. As professionals on the front lines, they have insights and expertise that are critical to government’s health refocusing work. Significant engagement across the province has been held over the past three months and is scheduled to continue, making the new parliamentary secretary role critically important.

“I look forward to collaborating with Chelsae in the weeks and months to come. With her health care background, she will bring a very important perspective to our refocusing work. The voice of every health care worker is critical to understanding what is actually happening on the front lines and what needs improving. Chelsae will help us incorporate those voices to strengthen the health system for all Albertans.” Adriana LaGrange, Minister of Health, Alberta
