Respondent's response form

The person or organization against whom a complaint is made is called the respondent. The response form helps the respondent to provide detailed information about the issues identified in the complaint. The complaint form specifies the section(s) of the Alberta Human Rights Act on which the complaint is based. A timely response helps to facilitate a fair and balanced resolution of the complaint. If you have any questions about the complaint, please contact us for assistance.

Complete the response form

Instructions on how to complete the form are in the response form document and the letter sent to you by the Commission. Add extra pages if you need more space to answer questions, up to a limit of 20 single-sided pages, including the form. List documents (if you have any) that relate to the complaint but do not send them. Documents may be requested later in the complaint process.

The response form is available in two formats:

1. Fillable PDF (12-point font)

You can download the response form to your computer. Enter your information on the form and save it.
Print the form and guide and write your response on the form.

2. Large print fillable PDF (24-point font)

Upon request, the Commission will email or mail you the large print response form.

Submitting your response form

Completed forms can be emailed, faxed, mailed or dropped off at a Commission office. A Human Rights Officer will review your response, share it with the Complainant and advise you on the next step.
