Indian Association of Alberta (1939-)

Administrative history

The Indian Association of Alberta held its first meeting at Wabamun on July 28, 1939, with delegates present from eleven reserves. The group grew out of the earlier League of Indians of Alberta. By 1945 IAA had locals on most Alberta reserves, and it developed into one of the most influential Indian groups in Canada. It sent delegations to the Joint Committee of the Senate and Commons on Indian Affairs in 1947 and 1960, and has been directly involved in obtaining revisions to the Indian Act, improved health and educational facilities, and other services for Alberta Indians.
