An important part of the Human Rights Commission’s mandate is to educate and inform the public about the Human Rights Act. The Commission believes that the best way to reduce the occurrence of human rights violations is to ensure that all people and organizations know what their rights and responsibilities are under the Human Rights Act.
The Commission is available to give free presentations and information sessions for any interested organizations, groups, or individuals. If you would like to discuss scheduling a presentation, please contact us.
The Commission has also developed a number of resources for public use. Check in frequently for updated information.
