Speaking out

Real stories of real people in Canada, who are speaking out, speaking up, and fighting for justice and equality — in their own ways, in their own lives.

Promoting Human Rights

As Canada’s national human rights institution, we also work to promote equality and inclusion by raising awareness, encouraging dialogue, engaging with civil society, providing advice to lawmakers on pressing and emerging issues and reporting on Canada’s human rights progress.

From providing guidance to Canadian employers on the legalization of cannabis, to contributing to new laws on accessibility, pay equity, and sexual harassment, to our submission to the UN Committee Against Torture and Canada’s Universal Periodic Review — the promotion and engagement side of our work in 2018 spanned many important issues.
