2018 has been a year of change, both in Provincial Legislation, Federal Legislation and Partnerships. The legislative changes mean major changes for Alberta employers. We want to make this year of transition as easy as possible by providing accurate and current information. Due to the volume of changes, we are hosting a 2-day event, allowing speakers sufficient time for each of the major topics.

Seminar Cost: AASP Members $175.00 +GST | Non-Members $275.00 +GST *
