2016-2018 Strategic Plan 

It is with great pleasure we present Parkinson Association of Alberta's 2016-2018 Strategic Plan. Over the course of several months the planning committee and CEO, John Petryshen, traveled throughout the province to clarify our priorities, goals, and responsibilities to ensure we move forward in delivering and achieving on our Mission and Vision of the Association.  I'd like to thank everyone from across the province for taking the time to get involved and provide us with your invaluable input.


Parkinson Association of Alberta invites you to take part in our journey that will inspire people living well with Parkinson's today, and hope for a world without Parkinson's tomorrow.



Doug Critchley, Board Chair
