The Aboriginal Commission on Human Rights and Justice (ACHR&J) advocates for Aboriginal people in Alberta, researches human rights issues and initiates public education about human rights from the unique legal and historic position and relationship of Aboriginal people in Canada. ​

 

Our goal is to provide support, research, and analysis to prevent and/or intervene on crimes against Aboriginal people as well as to advocate for positive race relations.          

 

Discrimination is intentional or unintentional prejudicial treatment because of race, religion or spirituality, colour, gender, ability, marital status, age, ancestry, place or origin, family status, or source of income. 

 

Harassment is threatening, offensive, or disturbing behaviour that includes unwanted physical contact, jokes, electronic posting, or comments. 

 

Alberta Human Rights Act outlines the human rights protections for all Albertans.  It prohibits harassment or discrimination in employment, tenancy, goods, services, accommodation or facilities, publications and notices, or union membership.
