Year Round Bookings
The Young Alberta Book Society is pleased to offer non-subsidized year-round bookings by touring member artists to Alberta schools and libraries.
Some districts in Alberta, such as the Calgary Board of Education and Edmonton Public Schools, require visiting vendors to have a certain level of insurance and WCB coverage. These can be prohibitively expensive for individual vendors, but when touring through YABS all of our members are covered by our insurance and WCB.
In addition, YABS maintains a file of current vulnerable sector police information checks for all of our touring artists. We are on CBE’s Artist Roster and EPSB’s Approved Vendor List, signed up for Electronic Funds Transfers for many districts, and we are happy to complete similar paperwork for any other districts as required.
