In this module participants are introduced to the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Ontario Human Rights Code. We review the coverage of each and their areas of protection and grounds of discrimination. Using case studies, we learn about the role of the Canadian and Ontario Human Rights Commissions, study everyday instances of discrimination and see how they are dealt with under each law. Through the course, we identify and explore the important role of the lay advocate un human rights cases.
