Jane Doe started this petition to Government of Alberta

The Government of Alberta has notified Alberta School Divisions that Social workers, Youth Workers, Outreach workers, Psychologists, Speech and Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists are NOT eligible for the $1200 Critical Workers Benefit. 

This is a direct indication that the Alberta Government does not value the mental health or wellness of Alberta students during the COVID-19 pandemic. School based staff in the above positions have been showing up to work daily and meeting face to face to support students and families in all areas of wellness. 

We demand that the Government of Alberta compensate our front line work by including us as eligible job titles for the Critical Worker's benefit and acknowledge their wrong doing with a written apology for excluding our critical supports.

Please sign this petition if you support school based staff who directly support students in their mental, physical and emotional health.
