Usage Considerations

The Alberta Official Statistics presents active clients for a specific month and presents the monthly caseload from April 2008 to the present. This is reported as the number of active cases for the month or, if more than one month is selected, it will be the average of the time range. Clients active over a period of months are counted in the totals for each month they were active. The level of financial benefits varies depending on each individual's situation.
