This means more child care spaces and more opportunities for parents to enter the workforce.
March 07, 2019 - Edmonton, AB - Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel promised an Alberta Party government will require children to have up-to-date immunizations in order to attend a publicly-funded school.

Under an Alberta Party government, children will need to have up-to-date immunizations in order to attend a publicly-funded school. At a time when measles outbreaks are rising throughout the world, and even occurring in Canada, it’s more important than ever that our children and communities are protected. We send our kids to school to learn, not to get sick.”
