  • The Alberta Home Education Association (AHEA)
    AHEA is a Christian home schooling group for all of Alberta, that focuses exclusively on traditional home schooling (they don't support major traditional home schooling providers, if they also provide any other types of home schooling support, such as blended or aligned). They have a conference each year in Red Deer, that has lots of vendors that provide exclusively traditional home schooling materials. They also lobby the Alberta Government on matters that affect traditional home schooling.
