Formed on July 22nd, 2017, the United Conservative Party (UCP) has grown to become Canada’s largest provincial party with more than 160,000 members. The Founding AGM for the UCP was held in May 2018 and included the election of the first Board of Directors for the party.
As a party, we stand united on the following principles that guide our vision for a stronger Alberta:

As proof of membership, an Albertan will either hold a valid official current membership card issued in his or her name or be on the official membership list.
Albertans who had valid memberships in the Legacy Parties on the date the Agreement in Principle was signed, will be respected and acknowledged as members of UCA and UCP. The scheduled expiration dates of their membership in the UCA/UCP will correspond to the expiry date of their Legacy Party membership.
Individuals who became members of either of the Legacy Parties after the signing of the Agreement but before membership sales in the UCP commence, will also be respected and acknowledged as members of UCA and UCP. The scheduled expiration dates of their membership in the UCA/UCP will correspond to the expiry date of their Legacy Party membership.
The UCP achieved a significant milestone by our membership at the Founding Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Red Deer from May 4 to 6, 2018. In Red Deer, more than 2,600 UCP members participated in the dialogue, debate and ratification of governing bylaws for the new UCP, and the beginning of the party’s policy declaration. Constructing bylaws and policies through a grassroots consultation process in a short-period of time is a testament to the commitment of our membership.
