OHRC Offers Free Training on the Policy on Competing Human Rights

October 26th, 2012 by Celia Chandler

In April, the Human Rights Commission released its Policy on Competing Human Rights.  This policy provides importance guidance on what to do when to accommodate the rights of one person leads to a possible breach of the rights of another.   This comes up sometimes for our clients and so we were excited to receive an invitation today to attend a free training session on how to use this policy.  We plan to be there and you may want to too!    

The Ontario Human Rights Commission invites you to:
