The Alberta Human Rights Act establishes the Alberta Human Rights Commission to carry out functions under the act. The Commission is an independent commission created by the Government of Alberta, which reports to the Minister of Justice.
The Commission has a two-fold mandate: to foster equality and to reduce discrimination. It fulfills this mandate through public education and community initiatives, through the resolution and settlement of complaints of discrimination, and through human rights tribunal and court hearings.
The Alberta Human Rights Commission works with Albertans to promote awareness of, and appreciation for, human rights and diversity, and to remove barriers that prevent Albertans from fully participating in society.
As a Junior Human Rights Officer your primary role will focus on responding to human rights and discrimination inquiries from a wide range of clients, including the public and members of groups protected by human rights legislation, employers, service providers, landlords, union, and other potential respondents. Using your exceptional communication skills you will also provide information as to provisions of the Alberta Human Rights Act, including processes for making complaints, requirements for reasonable accommodation under the Act, dispute resolution services, etc.
A secondary function of this role will be managing a caseload, where you would be responsible for interpreting and applying broadly outlined legislative principles and policy (such as reasonable accommodation), assessing the basis for complaints, providing conciliation and/or mediation services, and arranging settlements.
In this role you will require strong analytical, conciliation, mediation, and fact finding skills, excellent communication skills (verbal and written), strong interpersonal and relationship building skills, and the ability to lead appropriate systemic change processes when required.
A related university degree and a minimum of 2 years related experience. Experience with conciliations, mediations, and report writing will be considered an asset. Equivalencies will be considered.
