Bill 15, the Choice in Education Act, was introduced in Alberta legislature on May 28. 

"If COVID did something," notes Michael Van Pelt, president and CEO of Cardus, "it showed us that we need flexibility in educational formats and educational approaches, and the bill does that, too. I think there's lots more work to do. But we're quite satisfied with those shifts, definitely."
