Grants totalling $11 million will transform palliative and end-of-life care that eases suffering for Albertans with a life-limiting illness.

In September 2020, the province announced $20 million for palliative and end-of-life care initiatives. Since then, Alberta’s government has invested almost $9 million for new projects such as community hospice care, and education and training for health professionals.

The new grant program will use the remaining $11 million for projects that support four priority recommendations in the Advancing Palliative and End-of-Life Care in Alberta final report. These priorities include earlier access, education and training, community supports and services, and research and innovation.
