Human Rights Statement


The purpose of the Calgary Stampede is to preserve and promote western heritage and values by celebrating the people, the animals, the land, the traditions and the values that make up the unique spirit of the west. The success of the Stampede is founded on the organization’s 111-year history of adjusting to, engaging and reflecting our community on a local, regional and international basis.

We are deeply committed to operating with integrity and do so by caring for our people, respecting the rights of all people, caring for the lands in which we are stewards of and acting responsibly in our operations.

Our commitment to human rights is informed by the Canadian Human Rights Act, the Alberta Human Rights Act, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as well as Federal and Provincial employment standards.
