"The app will keep those who download it on their tablet, laptop or smart phone up to date on various funding programs, opportunities and community information offered through the ACAA"
The Aboriginal Congress of Alberta Association (ACAA) has launched a new mobile application in order to further their mandate of engaging with and supporting urban and rural Indigenous peoples throughout Alberta.
Having the mobile app available to the public will allow the ACAA to send push notifications directly to their members’ devices regarding community outreach projects, advocacy activities, news, announcements and other vital communications.
Beverly Allard, the President of the ACAA as well as a Director with the National Congress of Aboriginal Peoples, said “Because our primary audience is people living off-reserve throughout the province, being able to reach out to them directly is a monumental upgrade to our communications toolkit. We can make sure that information reaches the people it needs to, on a platform that is simple and easy for anyone to pick up and use.”
The ACAA works to represent and assert the rights and interests of indigenous individuals living off-reserve in Alberta’s urban and rural areas.
