Human Rights and Multiculturalism Grants

Human Rights Education and Multiculturalism Fund (HREM)The Human Rights Education and Multiculturalism Fund provides grants that support community projects that foster equality and reduce discrimination. These grants assist non-profit organizations, public institutions and communities to build a society where all Albertans can participate in the social, cultural, political and economic life of the province. Projects may address the intersection of human rights and issues such as social exclusion, inequality of opportunity, discrimination, racism, or other barriers that limit Albertans' ability to be full and contributing citizens.
