Alberta Powerlifting Union

The Alberta Powerlifting Union (APU) is the strongest sport organization in the province, literally. Our sport tests the human body's capability to lift as much weight as possible through three events: squat, bench press, and deadlift.

Since the APU was founded in 1983, our volunteer-based organization has administered powerlifting activities and sanctioned contests in every corner of Alberta. While the word "powerlifting" might conjure certain images of the type of athlete that participates in our sport, we are 100% committed to providing an inclusive sport environment for all ages, genders, sizes, abilities, and disabilities.
