The Government of British Columbia is re-establishing the BC Human Rights Commission. Your stories, ideas and concerns can help shape the role and priorities of the new commission. Join an online consultation with Parliamentary Secretary Ravi Kahlon and talk about what matters to you. The online discussion is open until November 17, 2017. All feedback will be summarized in a public report by the end of 2017.
Currently, British Columbia has a Human Rights Tribunal that receives and decides on human rights complaints. Is this enough? What about an organization to take a proactive approach to prevent discrimination, deal with it when and where it happens, and face inequalities built into our institutions? That is the work of human rights commissions across Canada—should it be the work of the BC Human Rights Commission?
Have your say. Help shape the future for human rights in BC.
