FOSTERING EQUITABLE COMMUNITIES
CCE Alberta is a province-wide community of practice that supports the advancements of all equity issues and greater awareness of the human rights of Albertans. We also support communities and individuals in navigating the pathways and access points to services to heal and support one another. We also support an increase in diversity and inclusion within workplaces and communities and the cultural awareness to support and maintain this.
STRONGER MORE INCLUSIVE ORGANIZATIONS
CCE Alberta aims to provide organizations with the resources to boost knowledge and capacity to engage with their communities. We also work to connect the work and rersearch of organizations across the province to other regions making them more aware of the equity work done across Alberta.
EQUITABLE CITIES: EQUITABLE PROVINCE
CCE Alberta aims to give municipalities and the Government of Alberta a better overview of the equity opportunities and system gaps across regions. This will allow decision makers to prioritize the issues that matter most to different communities.
An equitable and just Alberta that understands, practices and advocates for human rights as defined by the Canadian and Alberta human rights legislations.
Creating alignments and increasing capacities between regions to better collaborate, share and develop resources, and advocate with and for one another to address issues of equity, hate and discrimination.
ALBERTA HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION
In Alberta, the Alberta Human Rights Act protects Albertans from discrimination in certain areas based on specified grounds. The purpose of the Alberta Human Rights Act is to ensure that all Albertans are offered an equal opportunity to earn a living, find a place to live, and enjoy services customarily available to the public without discrimination. The Alberta Human Rights Act establishes the Alberta Human Rights Commission to carry out functions under the act.
