The Alberta Policy Coalition for Chronic Disease (APCCP) was established in 2009. We represent a broad range of practitioners, policy-makers, researchers, and community organizations who have come together to coordinate efforts, generate evidence, and advocate for policy change to reduce chronic disease in Alberta.

For 2017, funding for the APCCP is provided primarily by the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Our Members

The APCCP is composed of seventeen member organizations who work together in advocating for healthy policy changes for a healthier Alberta:

Our Objectives

  • Increasing the capacity of policy makers and decision makers in Alberta to use policy as a strategy for cancer and chronic disease prevention
  • Providing leadership in the development, implementation, and evaluation of policy related activities for cancer and chronic disease prevention
  • Facilitating practitioners, policy-makers, researchers, and community organizations from various sectors working together to enhance public acceptance of policy-related activities

For More Information

The APCCP was a partner on the POWER UP! project from 2013-2016. POWER UP! stands for Policy Opportunity Windows – Engaging Research Uptake in Practice. POWER UP! was a team of researchers, practitioners, and policy makers who have come together to gather and share evidence on chronic disease prevention with Canadians – all in one place. Funding for POWER UP! was provided by the federal government through the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer’s Coalitions Linking Action & Science for Prevention (CLASP) program.
