In December 2020, the Government of Alberta passed Bill 46, The Health Statutes Amendment Act, 2020 (No. 2). This bill provides for significant amendments to the Health Professions Act including the mandatory requirement for health professional regulatory colleges to cease and divest of professional association functions and activities.
Legislation requires the ADA&C to cease and divest of professional association functions. This means no longer delivering activities that focus on promoting or advocating for the dental profession. The ADA&C will move forward operating as the College of Dental Surgeons of Alberta (CDSA).
