  1. Annual report 2008-2009

    June 2009 - This past year we celebrated the 60th anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As we did, I thought about how recent the concept of human rights really is, and how, over 60 years, it has changed to include more and more people in our communities. People with disabilities, members of the LGBT communities, newcomers from across the globe – are just some of the people who have worked hard to see themselves reflected accurately and equitably in our society. That work has resulted in great advances; much has been achieved in just 60 years.

    Marketing awareness with Seneca College

    One of the challenges of transforming Ontario’s human rights system is to let Ontarians know about the changes.
