The OHRC works to build respect for human rights into all aspects of life in Ontario. To do that, we look at the roots of discrimination, develop policy for preventing different forms of discrimination and work to raise awareness of human rights issues. The OHRC intervenes, as needed, at tribunals and all levels of court on human rights issues with broad public interest or concern. We work with different sectors and groups, including the Government of Ontario, to promote organizational change and to break down barriers to equity and success.
