Alberta Department of Public Works

  • Corporate body
  • 1905-1975

The Department of Public Works was created in line with the Alberta Act, which established Alberta as a separate province on September 1, 1905. In a proviso in the federal statute, the Department of Public Works that had existed in the North-West Territories would continue over into the new province. The Department of Public Works was officially created by Alberta legislation in 1906 when the Public Works Act repealed the Public Works Ordinance. The new legislation still allowed that the functions, duties, and structure of the department remained consistent.
The Department of Public Works was responsible for the management, charge, and direction of construction, heating, lighting, furnishing, maintenance, and repair of all government buildings, and the control and management of the construction and maintenance of all public works. In the enabling legislation, public works is defined as the property of the Crown and controlled by the department, and included all lands, streams, watercourses, and property acquired for public works.
The Department of Public Works maintained a hierarchical structure throughout its existence. At the inception of the Department of Public Works in 1905, it consisted of five branches: Correspondence, Accountants, Surveys, Engineering, and Local Improvement. The department evolved to include branches and sections related to the creation, operation, regulation, and maintenance of highway systems, mining, and employment. In 1951, legislation reorganized the Department of Public Works into two branches: Buildings and Mechanical. In 1960, the Department of Public Works was reorganized once again into six divisions: Architecture, Works and Maintenance, Construction, Maintenance, Mechanical, and Administrative Accounting. The department was reorganized again in 1966, leaving the administrative functions as branches outside of the three main divisions: Utilities Services, Design and Construction, and Maintenance Services. By 1975, before the dissolution of the department, there were five major divisions: Design and Construction, Finance and Administration, Physical Plant, Planning, and Realty.
A government-wide reorganization led to the Department of Public Works being divided into two successor bodies, the Department of Housing and Public Works and the Department of Government Services. The Design and Construction Division, Realty Division, the Planning Division, and elements of Finance and Administration from the Department of Public Works were merged with housing functions from the Department of Municipal Affairs to form the Department of Housing and Public Works. Alberta Government Services was responsible for the elements of the former Public Works Department concerned with operation and maintenance.
The Department of Public Works was dissolved on June 25, 1975 when the Department of Public Works Act was repealed by the Department of Government Services Act. In 1982, the Department of Government Services merged with the functions of public works from the Department of Housing and Public Works to form the Department of Public Works, Supply, and Services.

Alberta Fitness Leadership Certification Association

  • Corporate body
  • 1984 -

The Alberta Fitness Leadership Certification Association (AFLCA) facilitates the training and certification of fitness leaders and trainers in Alberta. Established in 1984, the association was founded by representatives of fitness agencies who were concerned with the consistency of fitness leadership in Alberta. The delivery of fitness leadership programs is through these agencies, under the guidelines of the AFLCA and its Board of Directors. The AFLCA is an agency-based, not-for-profit association whose operations benefit the represented agencies that deliver the AFLCA training programs. These agencies, in turn, represent their fitness leaders. The AFLCA adopted the guidelines put forth in 1984 by the National Fitness Leadership Advisory Committee (NFLAC). Performance standards were subsequently developed to recommend minimum competencies desired in the trained fitness leader. In 1989, the results of the comprehensive survey of leaders, trainers and agencies led the AFLCA towards the development of a new program model, which included more specialized areas of fitness training and more variety in courses for leaders to explore and agencies to administer. The mandate of AFLCA is to establish and implement specific standards and guidelines that organizations can follow for the training of their fitness leaders, to certify those leaders who have been trained and through that training have met the standards and guidelines established by the Association and to coordinate the standards and guidelines established by the National Fitness Leadership Advisory Committee (NFLAC) and to adjust these standards and guidelines to be most suitable for the fitness leaders of Alberta.

In 2001, the Alberta Energy Research Institute (AERI) took over the responsibilities of the AOSTRA.
AOSTRA was led by a government-appointed board of up to nine members, all with experience in petroleum development and technology. This board was responsible for selecting projects that met the mandate of the organization. Costs of projects were shared with the energy industry and technologies resulting from projects were available to users at fair market value.
Additionally, AOSTRA supported research at universities and research institutions through grants for inventors, operation of a technical information system, and international cooperation in oil sands development.

In October, 1919 a committee was convened by the Provincial Secretary to advise on matters relating to industrial research. A preliminary survey of resources was conducted, with encouraging results, and in 1921 the Scientific and Industrial Research Council of Alberta was formally established by Order-in-Council. Research was to be conducted in cooperation with the University for laboratory and other facilities. The President of the University was a member of the Council; the Provincial Secretary and the Premiers of the Province have acted as Chair. In 1930, under new legislation, the Council was reorganized to be an advisory body to the Cabinet. A Cabinet Minister was Chair of the Council; the President of the University was Chair of the Technical Advisory Committee and Director of Research. At this time the Council's name was shortened to the 'Research Council of Alberta'; it is now known as the Alberta Research Council. With the onset of the Great Depression the work of the Council halted. The University took over its funding, work, and staff in 1933; the Council itself did not meet from 1934 to 1942. In 1943, the Research Council Act was amended to include ten members, of which two were from the cabinet (one to act as chair); the President of the University; the Director of Research, and members at large.

A full-time paid position was established in that year. The purpose of the Alumni Affairs Office, headed by a Director, is to provide professional administrative management and support to the Association, and to oversee alumni involvement with the University.

Assiniboia Community Housing Cooperative

  • Corporate body

The Assiniboia Community Housing Cooperative (ACHC) began its existence known as Campus Co-operative Association in March of 1967. Its initiative at that time was to provide low-cost housing to students at the University of Alberta, in a time before HUB, Lister Hall, or Michener Park were completed. In September of 1967, the University’s Board of Governors, whose task it was to oversee University-owned properties, rented six houses to the fledgling organization in the North Garneau area. By the early 1970’s, the Co-op reached its membership peak of about 65 members, and purchased their first house in the Strathcona area. A second home was purchased in 1973 in Parkallen. Using a ‘capital loan’ system where members ‘loaned’ the Co-op $25 each upon taking out membership, monies were collected for initial down payments on homes. A ‘capital levy’ plan was later introduced whereby the Co-op charged a capital levy per member, on top of the monthly housing charge, as a means of raising capital for the expansion of the Co-op and for meeting maintenance costs on existing properties. In the early 1970’s, as well, the Co-op obtained a further four rented houses from the City of Edmonton. Original University-owned houses were occasionally demolished in the North Garneau neighbourhood, and the Co-op received other houses in replacement. A few other houses were rented from private landlords and by the summer of 1973, there were twelve houses in the Campus Co-operative Association. In 1977 the Campus Co-operative Association was dissolved by the Co-op Development Branch of the Alberta Department of Consumer and Corporate body Affairs for failing to submit an audit form on time. A new set of by-laws and a policy manual were developed and the Co-op was reinCorporate bodyd on September 27, 1978 as the Campus Co-operative Association (1977). By 1981, the new name of Assiniboia Community Housing Cooperative was chosen to reflect a shift away from a majority student membership which prevailed at its inception in 1967. Membership in the houses was open to anyone accepted by the members of a Co-op household, and subsequently approved by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors consisted of four executive members elected at semi-annual general meetings, and of one house representative from each house; board meetings were held monthly, and were open to the general membership to attend. Various committees were established to deal with specific matters, and members were expected to work on a committee or do some other specified work for the Cooperative. Members also shared cooking and other house chores. Membership criteria evolved over time to accept both student and non-student membership, and houses were co-ed. In 1986, the AHCC owned five houses and ceased leasing property from the University. While the records in the fonds go only to 1990, the Assiniboia Community Housing Cooperative continues to function. They are a listed entry in the University of Alberta’s Student Union Housing Registry (as of 2006), and advertise three houses available in the Cooperative.

In 1987 University of Alberta Professors Emeriti Dr. Tom Nelson, Dr. Earle Waugh, and Prof. Sharon Brintnell, formed a committee to redress the absence of provisions that support continuation and development of the research, professional, and public service roles that the professors had begun in their academic career. The original committee, chaired by Dr. Earle Waugh, quickly built interest both within and beyond the University community. A survey was then undertaken that showed the formation of an association of Professors Emiriti was welcomed by a majority of the Alberta Academic community that would facilitate the individual and collective development of the University of Alberta Emeriti. In addition this association was seen as a vehicle that would safeguard their status and privileges. With support from the federal government, the department of advanced education, as well as then University President Dr. Myer Horowitz, the Association opened an office in the Edmonton neighborhood of Garneau. The association began publishing a registry and newsletter, and in May 1987 the Constitution of the Association was formed.
