COLLABORATION

Industry for Vaccination Alberta Coalition

Bringing vaccination access to all Albertans

The Industry for Vaccination (IFV) Coalition is a cross-Canada, industry-led collaboration, partnering with governments to leverage private sector resources as a part of a broader humanitarian effort to increase vaccinations in Canada and to protect both the lives and livelihoods of Canadians.

The Alberta Coalition is co-chaired by the Business Council of Alberta and Suncor Energy and features some of Alberta’s most prominent private sector organizations, including BCA Members WestJet, Enbridge, DynaLIFE, and TRAXX, among others. 

The coalition has been working collaboratively with Alberta Health over the pandemic to expand vaccination access and enhance uptake in the province.

The IFV works with one goal in mind:

To help enhance vaccination, save lives, and accelerate recovery.

The Work

Access

Provide equitable access to first and second dose vaccinations in Alberta.

We are motivated to save lives by bringing vaccines to communities without vaccination services, reliable transportation options, and to those working in hard-to-reach areas.​

Prevention

Reduce the likelihood of variant outbreaks.

By vaccinating harder-to-reach rural pockets of Alberta and by providing rapid response to outbreaks, we can help to keep Albertans safer by deploying our mobile vaccination clinic to areas of need.

Mobilization

Demonstrate the long-term value of mobilization.

As Alberta shifts from a pandemic response, to an ongoing campaign, our work is showing how creative ideas can lead to results in protecting Albertans.

Mobile Vaccination Clinic

In a joint effort between the IFV Alberta Coalition and Alberta Health, Alberta has launched the province’s first mobile vaccination clinic (MVC)—and second in Canada—to help amplify and extend Alberta’s vaccination efforts.

The clinic has the potential to provide up to 300 vaccinations per day, and will be stopping at worksites, plants, and rural communities throughout the province. Vaccinations are provided at no charge. If you would like more information or to bring the MVC to your town, worksite, or community, please click the button below to complete the form, or download our one pager here.

This initiative would not have been possible without our industry partners. We thank all of them for their support for this project and commitment to the health, safety, and wellbeing of all Albertans.
