Step 1 of 5


Instructions: Litigation Representative

Purpose of this form

If you are acting as a litigation representative for someone involved in a human rights complaint, this form applies to you. A litigation representative means a person who represents either:

  • A minor under the age of 18. For example, the parent or guardian of a minor.
  • A person who lacks the legal capacity to participate in the complaint process when making or responding to a complaint.

We assume anyone over the age of 18 is legally capable of making their own decisions, unless shown otherwise.

Important information

  • Use this form only if you are a litigation representative. Note that appointing a litigation representative is not a common situation, but one can become involved at any time in the complaint process.
  • Complete this form in addition to a Complaint Form or Response Form.
  • Note the Alberta Human Rights Commission (the Commission, we, us) will review this declaration and may ask for submissions by the parties regarding this litigation representative declaration.

Other situations need a different form

You will need a different form if you are an authorized representative. The authorized representative form is available in a different part of this website and the representation section of the guide has more information.
