About the 2018 AHEA Convention


AHEA is Western Canada’s largest home education convention. We bring in the largest variety of speakers and vendors in all of Canada. We welcome all parents who are interested in home education and we are not exclusionary. Our goal is to simply offer the widest variety of resources to parents. We’ve been doing this for over 30 years. Come join us and check out home education at our annual convention in April, 2018 in Red Deer.

AHEA Continues to Advocate for Home Educators

April 22, 2013

Over past several weeks, AHEA has been in meetings with both the Minister of Education and Alberta Education Bureaucrats in order to advocate on behalf of all Alberta home educators, and to advocate for quick resolution of some specific issues. These meetings seem to have been very fruitful. As a result and as far as we know, Alberta Education has now resolved the conflicts with Alberta Home Education Contractors.

AHEA will be very involved in the ongoing review of the Home Education Regulation in order to protect the long-term rights and freedoms of all Alberta parents.

“Remember” - A Must-Watch Film produced by Alberta Homeschooling Family
Recently, more than one homeschool family has taken up storytelling through film, in order to have a godly influence on our culture. One powerful example is the film Remember, made by the Lammiman family in Airdrie. Remember warns of increasing government encroachment into the God given jurisdictions of the family.

Lee Duigon of The Chalcedon Foundation wrote,
"Remember outclasses many a Hollywood production. . . The story is compelling; the acting is professional in quality, even without a single big name in the cast; the camera-work is superb; the music is just right - and, best of all, Remember is artistically daring and full of surprises.
". . . Fulfilling a dream as old as Plato, the state has finally abolished the family. Children are given up at birth and raised by the government. Their parents' awareness that they've even had these children is wiped out by (a drug called) MemRelief. But Remember has a Christian message, so the story has much more to offer than just a visit to a dreary future.”

If you want a thought provoking, discussion starting Christian film to share with your family, this film is it. Remember was a feature finalist at San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival, was named Best International Narrative Feature at the San Diego Christian Film Festival and won a Platinum Pixie Award from the American Pixel Academy for it’s visual effects.

CBC Report on Education Act: Negative Portrayal of Home Educators

Anna Maria Tremonte conducted a radio interview with HSLDA Lawyer, Paul Faris regarding the removal of the Alberta Human Rights Act from the now passed Education Act.  The interviewer seemed to want Mr. Faris to respond a particular way, but instead, Mr. Faris spoke to the issue of the Alberta Human Rights Act competently.
A disturbing component of the interview was the last two minutes, and the discriminatory skit aired against home educators portraying us as incompetent, uneducated, and bad parents.  
Paul van den Bosh, AHEA Media Spokesperson, wrote a response to a follow-up report in the Calgary Herald highlighting Liberal MLA Hehr’s comments related to the issue.  Mr. Hehr had also been interviewed in the CBC report, but the Herald refused to print this response.
LifeSiteNews has reported on this issue and the discriminatory ‘journalism’ used by Ms. Tremonti.  These articles may be seen at
