Two grant programs have an application deadline of October 1, 2015

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 cultural, social, economic and political 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.

Two grant programs have an upcoming application deadline of October 1, 2015:

  • Experience Human Rights grants are micro grants that provide incentives for non-profit organizations to encourage Albertans to build greater involvement in human rights matters. This grant will provide up to $1,000 per year to organizations for one or more days of human rights-related activities.
  • The Human Rights Project grants are designed for longer and more complex projects that advance change to specific human rights issues. They are available to non-profit organizations and public institutions.
