Alberta Women’s Liberal Commission

The Alberta Women’s Liberal Commission (AWLC) is the Alberta chapter of the National Women’s Liberal Commission. We promote women’s knowledge, participation, and interests in the Liberal Party of Canada (LPC). We also encourage women to run for office at all levels of government and to take on leadership roles within a campaign and within the LPC.

Our executive team is as follows:

Section Chair Heather Rempel 
Section Vice Chair Jeanne Lehman 
Section Policy Chair Maria Omar
Secretary Loretta Thiering
Edmonton Outreach Freweinin Mebrahtu
Calgary Outreach Andrea Joyce
Director At Large Susan Fung
Director At Large Vacant
YLC(A) Rep Vacant
IPCA Rep Michelle Robinson
SLCA Rep Catherine Ryan
Immediate Past Chair Jennifer Pollock 

As half the members of the Young Liberals of Canada, the Indigenous Peoples’ Commission, and the Senior Liberals’ Commission identify as female, we have fostered great relationships with them to ensure that those demographics within the AWLC are heard.

As Liberal women who share progressive values we need to multiply our efforts and reach out to our circles of family and friends (and their friends and family) in person, by email and through social media to amplify our communication, increase our membership and raise the Judy LaMarsh Fund money our Liberal women candidates need to win. We were able to elect a Liberal government in 2015, 2019, and 2021, but in a minority government scenario we know that elections are just one confidence vote away. 

As chair of the AWLC, I look forward to hearing your ideas, supporting your initiatives, and working with you to make sure the voice of Liberal women is heard loud and clear in the Liberal party and throughout Alberta.   Should you want to be more involved with us, please feel free to email me at or call/text me at (587) 987-3984.

As Always,

Heather Rempel

Chair, AWLC
