Convening cross-sector stakeholders.

Dementia Network Calgary is a growing group of knowledgeable, capable, and passionate individuals from across public, private and nonprofit sectors in Calgary and area with an interest in Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Created in 2013, it is based on a collective impact model, an innovative approach to tackling complex social and systemic issues, which requires the coordinated efforts of cross-sector stakeholders.

With the rising incidence of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias in the local community and the complexity of this dementia challenge, a need to create a group of people and organizations that can collectively identify the challenging questions that surround dementia and implement shared solutions that benefit our entire community was identified.

Dementia Network Calgary was created in response to this critical need; embracing an approach that spans the traditional boundaries of sector and discipline, and intentionally cultivates collaboration across multiple sectors. Today, Dementia Network Calgary includes representatives from the following stakeholder groups:

  • Families/ care partners;                      
  • Private and public care facilities;
  • Non-profit service providers;
  • Community organizations;
  • Health services;
  • Post-secondary institutions; and
  • Government.


Dementia Network Calgary's Steering Committee is comprised of partners who work together to create the strategy required to forward the group’s common agenda – as was completed through the Strategy Roadmap process – and are accountable for continuing progress towards the achievement of the strategic goal
