The Alberta Federation of Home and School Associations was organized in 1929 to provide local home and school associations across the province with a central body to coordinate policies and activities. Its objectives include support for the policies of the Canadian Federation of Home and School and the Parent-Teacher Federation, and cooperation with other organizations involved in the care and education of children in the home, school and community. In the 1990s the name was changed to the Alberta Home and School Councils' Association. For further information see Alberta Federation of Home and School Associations : 50 Golden Years, A History / R. Lumgair. -- Calgary : The Federation, 1979.
