Please note that teachingsexualhealth.ca does not maintain a list of approved guest speakers for schools. Alberta Health Services defers entirely to each individual school board/jurisdiction on their in-school guest speaking decisions. One tool that is available for use by teachers and school administration to guide their decisions on guest speakers is the Guide for Choosing School Health Resources available here: http://www.albertahealthservices.ca/assets/info/school/csh/if-sch-csh-guide-for-choosing-health-resources.pdf. This resource is meant to help schools choose high quality health and wellness resources that will meet their identified needs.
In the event of an emergency, always call 9-1-1. For more information on agencies in your area, please call Alberta HealthLink, Toll-free:811
