See the full list of nominated candidates here.

Even more than the numbers, these maps vividly illustrate how far behind the other parties the Liberals and the Alberta Party are in preparing for the next election. Neither appears to be “ready for prime time”.

Jerry,

The Alberta Party has taken the approach of finding qualified candidates who are committed to their community. We’re not just looking to put names on ballots, just because we can. Certainly other parties are very good at getting a name on every ballot, whether or not they live in the riding or even campaign at all beyond a few signs. That fact distorts who is, and who isn’t ready for primetime.

Come election day, it will be interesting to see the ratio of elected MLAs to candidates ran.
