The Alberta Human Rights Commission administers the Alberta Human Rights Act (the “Act”). If an individual has a reasonable basis to believe they have experienced discrimination related to a protected ground, they can make a human rights complaint to the Alberta Human Rights Commission. Once a complaint is made, the Commission will work with the parties to resolve the complaint.
The Act provides protection from discrimination in employment practices, employment applications or advertisements and membership in trade unions, employers’ organizations or occupational associations under the grounds of race, religious beliefs, colour of skin, gender, gender identity, gender expression, physical and mental disability, age, place of origin, marital status, family status, sexual orientation and source of income.
