​Partnerships and Engagement Initiatives

The Commission is committed to supporting, encouraging and contributing to meaningful collaborative efforts that reduce discrimination, eliminate barriers and advance human rights.


The Commission is a founding partner in a multi-year partnership with the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association to help build the capacity of municipalities to be welcoming and inclusive while addressing racism and discrimination. The Commission is a champion of the Coalition of Inclusive Municipalities and Welcoming and Inclusive Communities (WIC) in Alberta.

The Alberta Hate Crimes Committee is another multi-agency partnership initiative in which the Commission is actively involved to assist in preventing, enforcing and responding to hate and bias motivated activities in Alberta.
In 2018, the Commission partnered with and supported the Coalitions Creating Equity initiative in several Alberta regions. Regional and provincial strategies will be implemented to support collaboration, leadership development and to build capacity in communities to prevent racism and discrimination and decrease inequity.

Engagement initiatives

In 2017, the Commission hosted a series of meetings with organizations across Alberta to learn about local human rights issues and priorities. What was heard during these conversations has helped to inform the Commission’s work in moving forward and strengthening its education and engagement mandate. The comments from the five communities visited are included in a summary report Your Voice: Advancing Human Rights in Alberta.

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.
