Alberta Teachers Association

The Alberta Teachers’ Association (ATA), as the professional organization of teachers, promotes and advances public education, safeguards standards of professional practice and serves as the advocate for its members.

In Alberta, when you are hired by a public, separate or francophone school jurisdiction, you automatically become a member of the ATA. The ATA is the voice of the teaching profession in Alberta and advocates on behalf of teachers. The ATA is a democratic organization governed by teacher representatives elected from the membership. One of the most important functions of the ATA is to maintain the high regard the Alberta public has for teachers. This is done by upholding standards related to teacher education, practice and conduct. The ATA is also the premier provider of teacher professional development in education in Alberta. For more information on the ATA, go to or use the contact information below.
