2022 StopHate Conversations

The Alberta Hate Crimes Committee (AHCC) and the Organization for the Prevention of Violence has been funded by the Province of Alberta to research the scope and impact of hate-motivated crimes and incidents in Alberta. The Province’s Hate Crime Coordination Unit will provide organizational support, supplemental police data, and information from the Alberta Crown Prosecution Service. They have engaged Abdulkadir Abdi who brings community and police experience to coordinate the project.

Between October 27 and December 15, 2022, the AHCC will meet with marginalized populations impacted by hate and bias across the province to better understand the prevalence of hatred and prejudice in Alberta. Participants will be invited to a January 2023 Hate Crime Symposium (in person/virtual) to review the results of the research report and provide their feedback. A final recommendations report will be submitted to the Government of Alberta in February 2023.

The Alberta Hate Crimes Committee was established in 2002 to foster an environment where all Albertans live in an inclusive, safe, caring and respectful hate-free community.
