As we reflect on our journey since 2001, the Alberta Hate Crimes Committee takes pride in the strides made towards fostering a safer and more inclusive Alberta. Through unwavering dedication, we have worked tirelessly to raise awareness, provide education, and develop a province-wide framework to combat hate crimes and incidents. Our commitment to fostering collaboration between law enforcement, the courts, and the community remains steadfast, promoting a unified approach to prevent and respond to hate and bias-motivated crimes.

Looking ahead, the Alberta Hate Crimes Committee, under the banner of StopHateAB, is resolute in its determination to continue this vital work. Our vision remains clear: to ensure that all Albertans thrive in a safe, caring, and respectful community where hate has no place. We believe in upholding the values of a democratic and pluralistic society, where intolerance is replaced by understanding, acceptance, and unity. Together, let us forge ahead on this path towards a future free from the shadows of hate, where our shared values strengthen the fabric of our diverse and vibrant society.

Who are we?

StopHateAB was established in 2001 as a response to increased instances of hate that have been seen in society. As a collaboration of community, law enforcement, justice and human rights institutions, StopHateAB seeks to bring comprehensive insight to issues of incidents and crime motivated by hate. 

We work to foster an environment where all Albertans live in an inclusive, safe, caring and respectful hate-free community. 

What is #StopHateAB?

Given the recent attention to hate-related incidents in Alberta, there is a significant need to document these incidents. The purpose of the #StopHateAB initiative is to fill this gap and create a space to document. Using our online form, users can document hate incidents, and can help build a map of documented hate in Alberta. 

Information generated from the #StopHateAB website will support the outreach and education initiatives of the Alberta Hate Crimes Committee.

Hate Crime in Canada

Currently, no standard definition of hate crime exists for Canadian police, government, academia, non-government organizations, or the community. Identifying and defining hate crime is often varied, done unilaterally and occurs in isolation. The hate crime definition we advocate for is:

A hate crime is a criminal offence committed against a person or property, which is motivated, in whole or in part, by the suspect's hate, bias, or prejudice towards an identifiable group based on, real or perceived race, national or ethnic origin, language, color, religion, sex, age, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other similar factor. Examples include mischief, assault, uttering threats, criminal  harassment, arson, murder.
