Human Rights in Employment Forum Series

The Alberta Human Rights Commission, together with the Human Resources Institute of Alberta, Enbridge Employee Services Canada Inc., Sturgeon County, the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties, and the United Food and Commercial Workers' Union Local 401, offer the Human Rights in Employment Forum Series. During the breakfast forum, employers and subject matter experts gather to discuss and better understand the related human rights issues and how they affect employers and employees. 

The breakfast forums are available to the public and are particularly recommended for:

  • Business owners 
  • Human resource practitioners 
  • Executives, managers, supervisors and team leads
  • Union representatives

Participants should have a working knowledge of the Alberta Human Rights Act. The Commission's workshops and online learning resources offer an overview of the Alberta Human Rights Act.

The Human Resources Institute of Alberta (HRIA) has approved Continuing Professional Development hours for Certified Human Resource Professionals (CHRP) in Alberta when attending a forum. Please contact HRIA for more information.

From April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015, the Commission hosted six Human Rights in Employment forums as part of the Duty to Accommodate series.
