Document Hate Incident Online

This form is designed to give you a platform to report a hate incident to the Alberta Hate Crime Committee. PLEASE REPORT ALL HATE CRIME TO THE POLICE. A hate incident is a non-criminal action committed against a person or property, the motive for which is based in whole or in part upon the victim’s race, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, gender, disability or sexual orientation. Because they are non-criminal in nature, police are limited in their ability to be involved.

Information from this form will help develop a clearer understanding of hate incidents in Alberta, and will help the Alberta Hate Crimes Committee with our outreach and educational programs. No identifying information will be asked for and your report will be anonymous. If you have any questions, please email us at
