Applicants will receive a declaration on scroll paper recognizing the occasion for that specific date.
A Ministerial Declaration designates a day in perpetuity. Groups may also request a Ministerial Statement to be issued for a date that only needs to be recognized the year in which it’s requested.
Declarations for a special day, week, month or year must:
- recognize important events, milestones, cultural groups and organizations that directly impact or connect with the province of Alberta
- be requested by organizations, not individuals, and only once per calendar year
- be apolitical
- not be offensive
- adhere to the principles in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and Alberta Human Rights Code
