Canada Immigration News from the Provincial News Alberta released on 21/09/2023. Opening doors to recovery in southern Alberta 
Good day ladies and gentlemen, this is IRC news and I am Joy Stephen, an authorized Canadian Immigration practitioner bringing out this special edition of Immigration news from Provincial News, Alberta. This news was released by the government on 21/09/2023. I am coming to you from the Polinsys studios in Cambridge, Ontario. Today is the 22/09/2023 
Throughout Alberta and across the country, the deadly disease of addiction is tearing apart families, communities and the lives of individuals. This week, the Lethbridge Recovery Community opened its doors to clients pursuing recovery in southern Alberta. The 50-bed recovery community provides addiction treatment programming where individuals can stay for up to one year. 
“This facility represents hope, healing and resiliency for everyone who enters it. Our goal is to support all Albertans in their pursuit of lifelong recovery from the deadly disease of addiction.” 
Dan Williams, Minister of Mental Health and Addiction 
Recovery communities are integral to Alberta’s Recovery Model. The Lethbridge Recovery Community is the second recovery community to open its doors in Alberta, with Red Deer being the first to open in May. Nine more recovery communities are planned or under construction across the province, firmly establishing Alberta as a leader in Canada in treatment capacity and long-term support for addiction recovery. 
With a capital investment of $19 million, the Lethbridge Recovery Community provides long-term addiction treatment for up to 200 people each year. Operation of the facility is fully funded by the Government of Alberta, at $3.4 million each year, making treatment free for any Albertan. The opening of this facility increases treatment capacity in Lethbridge by approximately 65 per cent.
