Discrimination and Human Rights in Canada
Nov 23 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Have you or has someone you know experienced discrimination at work or some other place like school or in a store? Has that discrimination been based on your sex, colour, religion, gender identity, mental disability or physical disability? What other grounds of discrimination are protected and in what circumstances?

If you feel you’ve got a legitimate human rights complaint, it’s free to file a complaint but where do you do that and what sort of remedies are available to you?

Join us for this informative talk and discussion with an experienced human rights mediator.
