Carey Majid

The Executive Director and C.E.O of the Commission is Carey Majid. Carey believes that the Human Rights Commission and process plays an integral role in any discussion about access to justice. People must have a simple and fast, but effective means of resolving disputes. However, the most important role of the Commission is to educate the people of Newfoundland and Labrador about the importance of and protection of human rights. Carey is a lawyer with over 17 years of litigation experience, with the last number of years focused exclusively in the areas of human rights, employment and administrative law. Carey holds a Bachelors of Arts (1994) from the University of Waterloo and a Bachelor of Laws from the University of New Brunswick (1999). She is a member in good standing of the Law Society of Newfoundland and Labrador. Carey also teaches the Law Society’s bar admission course on human rights and regularly presents on human rights issues to employers, government, schools and community groups. Carey is a featured speaker at many larger conferences and symposia, with a particular interest in diversity and inclusion.
