I have appreciated the videos by the leader of HSLDA. They are informative and concise which is good in this busy world. Keep up the good work!

Excellent service! You were a huge help as we went through the process of our son applying for an apprenticeship. Thank you!

Thank you very, very much for your help in figuring out our local school board requirements and keeping them from overstepping. Thanks for all you do for all of us! :)

The insurance for homeschool events is great for peace of mind!

We appreciate the involvement that HSLDA has had with homeschooling issues in Alberta over this past year!

We appreciate the wealth of information and resources online. Thank you!

You are always prompt in getting back to me with my concerns and you always take the time to listen. I love knowing that you ‘get it’ because you also have homeschooled and have been in my place. It has been refreshing and encouraging knowing you are there!

I love the learning project template (for Quebec) and appreciate the communications I receive from HSLDA. Your updates are timely and informative.
