Toronto – On releasing the Commission’s 2006-2007 Annual Report today at Queen’s Park, Chief Commissioner Barbara Hall commented that, “This has been a year of debate, dialogue and development at the Ontario Human Rights Commission.”

The Human Rights Code Amendment Act, 2006 will shift responsibility for handling individual complaints from the Commission to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. Chief Commissioner Hall added, “We have been given the opportunity to reshape and improve the state of human rights in Ontario. I have been speaking with groups and individuals across the province, seeking input on our new direction. With the help of these same people – in the community, in government, and in the other pillars of the human rights system – we will build on Commission successes such as those achieved over the past year.”
