The Independence Party

"Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up, and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable - a most sacred right - a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world."

Abraham Lincoln

Preserving our hard-earned wealth and the legacies we've built motivates us, but it’s far from the whole picture of what this party stands for. Our vision goes a little further and reaches a little higher than just that. We seek something greater not just for ourselves but for all Albertans. We seek to build a country where the interests and priorities of Albertans come first. Our task is to build a home and future in their service and the interests of our legacies and to protect the future we are building together. 

The Independence Party is dedicated to the economic, political and cultural independence of the province of Alberta without condition or compromise. We with our friends, allies and partners stand proud and firm in service of this goal. If you feel as we do and wish to discover your independence, we invite you to join us. 


The Independent Republic of Alberta:

our RIGHT, our DUTY, our FUTURE


Join Us!




A message from our Leader, Katherine Kowalchuk.

Dear Members,

It is with humility and great excitement that I accept the appointment by The Independence Party of Alberta (TIP) Board of Directors as Interim Leader.  Having been involved with TIP since March of 2022, first as Director of Policy, Leadership Candidate, and most recently as the TIP nominated candidate for Olds/Didsbury/Three Hills in the 2023 Provincial Election, I have witnessed the strong support, dedication, and commitment by many Albertans to the truth and for a future for Albertans free of excessive government overreach and globalists interests.  These globalist interests have penetrated all mainstream political parties, bureaucracies, professional bodies, and most industries and institutions, we once thought we could trust. The globalists’ goals include, among other things, significantly curtailing the development and production of Alberta’s natural resources industries, through net zero and deceitful carbon capture energy policies, which will devastate our economy; and destroying the family unit through the implementation of far-left progressive policies such as SOGI in our schools and the assault against the fundamental understanding that parents know what is best for their children. These globalists, with the support of all mainstream parties, have thwarted the principles that recognize the Supremacy of God and the Rule of Law in most areas of our society; the very principles that have guided Canadians and Albertans and upon which our Country was founded.  The Independence Party of Alberta envisions a different path for Alberta. The Independence Party’s commitment to ensuring that Albertans’ needs and interests are not only protected but remain the priority.  This can be realized by holding a referendum under the Clarity Act, to become an independent nation, free from oppressive government and bureaucratic overreach and control. It was this primary mandate that attracted me to this party, and it is my mission during this interim period, to continue to inform Albertans that independence is the only peaceful and legal solution to protect our way of life, values, and our economy.  In the last Provincial election, TIP ran only 13 candidates and, in many constituencies, received the third most votes. This showing certainly surpassed the political pundits’ predictions. The TIP platform resonated with many Albertans, but the mainstream media message which was rooted in fear (and also promoted by so called independent media establishments), influenced the outcome.  While this party has experienced its challenges over the past year, the showing of the 13 candidates in the last Provincial election should provide you hope and encouragement that we are on the right path. TIP will only grow stronger from here. What we are setting out to achieve may seem impossible for some and daunting for any one individual. But remember, we are not one, we are many. Indeed, any organization that sets forward on a path as ambitious as The Independence Party of Alberta, must come together to overcome these obstacles.  We must push forward and oppose the so-called two-party organizational complex. Frankly, we have a moral obligation to stop funding our own tyranny and we must root out the corruption in all areas of our governments and bureaucracies, including locally. TIP is the only alternative for Albertans.  Your contribution and participation are vital to ensuring TIP’s success. Now is the time to get involved to ensure that we have all 87 constituencies ready to go for the next Provincial Election. We cannot do this without YOU! As author Edward E. Hale said, “I am only one, but I am one, I can’t do everything, but I can do something, and what I can do, that I ought to do, and what I ought to do, by the grace of God, I shall do.”  I look forward to this next chapter for The Independence Party of Alberta and with your help and support, I am optimistic that independence is a lot closer for us than we imagine.

Katherine Kowalchuk
Interim Leader, TIP
