Overview

The Clinic’s educational program builds awareness of human rights legislation and provides skills training to help prevent discrimination before it happens. We work with community groups, employers, labour councils and unions, colleges and others to provide a range of training, from introductory to intensive, on a variety of topics including:

  • The Basics of Human Rights Law and Policy;
  • Federal and Provincial jurisdiction
  • Discrimination, harassment and bullying in the workplace
  • The Duty to Accommodate
  • Dealing with drugs and alcohol
  • Investigating complaints and respecting privacy
  • The Complaint Process
  • Remedies in human rights cases

All sessions have a preventive focus while providing tools and resources that can be applied on a day-to-day basis. 

The Clinic also has a fee for service education and consultation program where we can deliver tailored training to meet identified needs.
