Experience Human Rights Grants

The Experience Human Rights grants are micro grants that provide incentives for non-profit organizations to encourage Albertans to build greater involvement in human rights matters. This grant will provide up to $1,000 per year to organizations for one or more days of human rights related activities. (For longer and more complex projects, see Human Rights Project Grants.) 

Examples of Projects

  • raise awareness of emerging or existing human rights issues,
  • increase capacity to undertake human rights initiatives,
  • provide Albertans the opportunity to acknowledge significant human rights matters,
  • build collaborative relationships that lead to addressing human rights and diversity, or
  • serve as a catalyst for change or future human rights action.
