Healthy Schools Alberta Magazine

Healthy Schools Alberta magazine is a twice-annually publication focused on active and healthy stories, initiatives, ideas, resources and activities.

It is distributed through the Alberta Teachers' Association and reaches every school in Alberta (roughly 2,110 schools). We print additional copies to reach delegates attending EAS events such as Shaping the Future.

*NOTE: As of January 1, 2020, Healthy Schools Alberta Magazine will be published once annually in the fall. If you have any questions regarding this decision, please reach out to our Creative Media Specialist, Kayli McClelland.
