ACGC identifies and recognizes the diverse abilities and needs of ACGC member organizations and works to utilize this knowledge to facilitate learning opportunities and the exchange of experience and expertise. This works to enhance and support the ability of ACGC members to carry out public engagement activities, network, strengthen their organizational development and knowledge of policy and increase the impact their work has in the global South.
ACGC produces opportunities for communication with the larger public; print newsletters, e-bulletins, the website and many forms of new media. These have proven to be successful communication tools for the Council and its members. ACGC displays member materials at a variety of educator and public events throughout the year. As well, ACGC is available to provide speakers or facilitate workshops and sessions at conferences, classrooms and other public events. ACGC continues to work to develop up-to-date documents with media lists and funding opportunities, located on the members’ only section of the ACGC website.
ACGC works to generate awareness and action related to international development and cooperation amongst Albertans. This includes working to inform Albertans of the tremendous work being done by NGOs in Alberta, leveraging the public engagement assets of members, collaboration with schools, NGOs and the public. Together we are stronger in applying pressure where it is needed, whether to government, the media, or national or international coalitions.
ACGC provides support to NGOs in Alberta through information and organizational development . ACGC sits on the Board of the Canadian Council for International Cooperation, which gives members direct access to research and analysis, national forums, data bases, and other information. ACGC also collaborates with six other provincial councils and various provincial, national and international networks. ACGC provides a direct communication link to CIDA.

ACGC provides effective and efficient way to combine efforts; participating in provincial or national campaigns, advocating on urgent action requests, or coordinating activities around sustainable
development, globalization, education, social justice, and the environment. ACGC also has a variety of meeting supplies available for rental, including a LCD projector.
