British Columbia seeks stakeholder feedback on the new human rights commission

Posted in Human Rights, Litigation

In August, I posted about Premier John Horgan’s announcement of the Government’s intent to re-establish a human rights commission. The intent of this new human rights commission will be to act proactively to address systemic discrimination and inequality in British Columbia.

The Government is now engaged in consultation with stakeholders and citizens, which will include online discussions with Parliamentary Secretary Ravi Kahlon, as well as in person meetings. If you would like to share your views on the role, functions and priorities of the new human rights commission, you can do so any time before November 17, 2017 at 4 pm. For more information on how to participate in the consultation process and to sign up to receive updates about this process, visit the B.C. Human Rights Commission webpage HERE.
