The Association of Little People of Alberta (ALPA) is a non-profit organization, incorporated in the province of Alberta, on April 24, 1989. ALPA provides moral support and fellowship for people with skeletal dysplasia (dwarfism).
We provide social interaction and support for parents and Little People peers. Our members are Little People children and teens and their families and Adult LP's.
We advocate for equality and have a positive outlook. In our group there are LP adults who are marketing managers, engineers, teachers, dayhome operators, business owners, nurses, and in the psychology field, and many more. There are moms, dads, and very fun and happy children. There are parents and siblings of Little People children and teens, and Little People Adults who are single, couples, and with families. We strive to provide families with support and information, as well as educate and inform interested professionals.
