Social Benefits Advocacy Program


The Social Benefits Advocacy Program (SBAP) can help you with questions or concerns about government assistance programs and services. The SBAP team can help by providing information, advice, guidance, advocacy, referrals and representation to people looking for help with benefit-related matters. We can help with:

  • Keeping social benefits you already have, like income support or AISH
  • Appealing, if you applied for a benefit and were denied or your benefits are being changed
  • Preparing for an appeal hearing
  • Understanding the law and policies around benefits
  • Connecting with other community support organizations

SBAP can help support and guide you in dealing with the following social benefit programs:

  • Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH)
  • Income Support (Alberta Works)
  • Old Age Security (OAS)
  • Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS)
  • Adult/Child Health Benefit
