Diversity and inclusion policy

Promoting a diverse and inclusive Alberta Public Service.


The Government of Alberta has a diversity and inclusion policy for the Alberta Public Service.

A public service that represents the broader population helps government to understand, respond, and effectively serve an increasingly diverse Alberta.

Being a diverse and inclusive employer includes encouraging Alberta’s diverse population to apply and compete on opportunities.

A workplace enriched by the innovation and creativity of a diverse and inclusive workforce attracts and retains the best and brightest.
