Human rights complaints

Individuals who believe they have experienced discrimination that is prohibited under Alberta's provincial human rights legislation, the Alberta Human Rights Act, may make a complaint to the Alberta Human Rights Commission. The Commission can accept only those complaints that are within its jurisdiction. The Commission provides services to resolve and settle complaints. Human rights tribunals adjudicate complaints that cannot be resolved.

In the 2019-20 fiscal year:

  • The Commission opened 895 complaint files.
  • The Commission closed 1,136 complaint files.
  • Ninety-five per cent of the complaints closed were dealt with through the Commission's complaint resolution and settlement processes.
  • The remaining five per cent closed through the tribunal process.

Additional details are available on:

Educational workshops, forums and webinars

The Commission provides public workshops and delivers presentations across the province. These workshops and presentations receive very positive evaluations from those who participate.

  • In 2019-20, the Commission delivered 19 public workshops and presentations.

Our vision is a vibrant and inclusive Alberta where the rich diversity of people is celebrated and respected, and where everyone has the opportunity to fully participate in society, free from discrimination.
