Society and values

Alberta is a caring society that values all cultures. The Alberta government protects human rights and promotes fairness by guaranteeing that all Albertans have the opportunity to participate fully in the social, cultural and economic life of the province. Albertans are also protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Important values guide our everyday lives. We believe in equality and respect for all individuals in our society. Our governing institutions all adhere to our cultural policy.

Albertans respect all people equally, including women, children and senior citizens. Each Albertan is unique, but our shared values make our province a safe, friendly and secure society in which to live.

We want you to feel welcome and at home, to build a rewarding career and create a great life for your family.
