Instructions: Human Rights Response Form

On the next page is the Human Rights Response Form. Please use it to respond to the human rights complaint you received from the Alberta Human Rights Commission (the Commission, we, us).

Please respond carefully and thoroughly. This helps everyone involved and will make it easier to process the complaint. There is more information about the complaint in the notification letter and copy of the Complaint Form that we sent with this form in addition to the Responding to a complaint page.

Note: The Commission must receive your response within 30 days from the date you receive this form and the notification letter.
