“Variety Has Helped Me, Help My Child.”

Who We Are

Variety – the Children’s Charity of Alberta supports children who are facing physical, developmental, emotional or learning challenges, through education, advocacy and community outreach.

  • Every child has the right to play and experience the simple pleasures of childhood;
  • We can have an inclusive and accessible Alberta for children who are facing physical, developmental, emotional or learning challenges;
