Description
Enforcing Human Rights in Ontario is a timely, straightforward guide on how human rights are protected, promoted and enforced in Ontario. Written by authors renowned for their experience in this area, it is essential for anyone responsible for ensuring that their organization complies with its human rights obligations. This includes employment, services, contracts, accommodation and vocational associations. Written in a practical, how-to format, it covers:
  • Commentary on the wide-ranging changes from the old to the new system – including the changed roles of the Human Rights Commission, Human Rights Tribunal and an overview of the new Human Rights Legal Support Centre
  • The role of the courts in enforcing human rights
  • Practical information and principled analysis to help those representing complainants, respondents, intervenors and the Commission
  • The interaction between the Human Rights Tribunal and other administrative tribunals with concurrent jurisdiction – and more!
