The Alberta Human Rights Commission has a long history of engagement with and commitment to Indigenous Peoples in Alberta. In advancing this work, the Commission has developed, with community feedback, its Indigenous Human Rights Strategy
to address and reduce systemic discrimination against Indigenous people; ensure its programs, services, and operations are accessible, meaningful, responsive, and culturally relevant to Indigenous people; and to strengthen and expand relationships with Indigenous communities and organizations. An Indigenous Advisory Circle
will support and inform the Strategy's implementation.
