Making a complaint: Phone our Confidential Inquiry Line


To inquire about making a complaint, contact the Commission's
Northern Regional Office Confidential Inquiry Line or Southern Regional Office Confidential Inquiry Line. See below for the phone numbers.

Due to confidentiality concerns, the Alberta Human Rights Commission cannot accept or reply to complaints of discrimination via e-mail. Please phone the Commission's confidential inquiry line if you have a question about a specific situation or want to make a human rights complaint. You can also send written complaints through regular mail. Please see below for our contact information.

A complaint must be made to the Commission within one year after the alleged incident of discrimination. The one-year period starts the day after the date on which the incident occurred. For help calculating the one-year period, contact the Commission.
