Our Thoughts Are With Our Wood Buffalo Chapter

There are no words to describe the devastating events that have occurred to the Wood Buffalo region. HRIA has donated funds to the Red Cross which we hope will help during this time. We have contacted our Wood Buffalo members directly and are offering them complimentary registration for provincial events and temporary office space at our HRIA Calgary office if needed. 

We wish everyone who have been affected all the best.
