The past year’s results show that the Commission is now better positioned than ever before to meet the challenges of its mandate: it has a current caseload, an all-time high in public education activities and some recent high profile policy initiatives have received very favourable public reaction. Both its community partners and government have acknowledged and recognized the progress that the Commission has made in its work.
In the Fall of 2000, the Commission engaged in a consultation process with staff and its external stakeholders including key provincial government ministries and agencies about its strategic directions for the 2001-2003 period. This process has clarified expectations and given important insights into the need for the Commission to continue to deliver on an increasingly wide range of human rights issues and activities. Over the next year, the Commission will be moving forward on implementing initiatives that support its established strategic objectives.
