Learn more about the Coalition and its partners

The Alberta Human Rights Commission, the Canadian Commission for UNESCO and other partners are calling on municipalities who have not yet joined the Canadian Coalition of Inclusive Municipalities  to consider joining, and be part of UNESCO's international coalition.

In addition to the Alberta Human Rights Commission and the Canadian Association of Statutory Human Rights Agencies, the Coalition is also supported by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, the Canadian Race Relations Foundation, the National Association of Friendship Centres for Aboriginal peoples, the Human Rights Commissions in Ontario and Saskatchewan, and associations of municipalities in different provinces, including the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association.  

The Alberta Human Rights Commission sits on the Coalition's Pan-Canadian Working Group, also representing the Canadian Association of Statutory Human Rights Agencies, and is leading the development of the coalition in Alberta. In addition to organizing and hosting the founding meeting of signatory municipalities on June 1, 2007, and chairing the first administrative meeting of the Coalition (also on June 1, 2007) Commission representatives co-chaired, presented and participated at sessions on the Coalition at the Canadian Commission for UNESCO (CCU) 2006 and 2007 Annual General Meetings, the 2006 World Urban Forum (Vancouver, BC), the 2007 national Metropolis Conference, and the 2007 International Metropolis Conference.
