Enforcing Human Rights in Ontario

July 20, 2009

The Human Rights Code was recently amended to significantly change how human rights are protected, promoted and enforced in Ontario. Enforcing Human Rights in Ontario is the first book to outline how the new human rights system works, written by lawyers renowned for their experience in the area.

Written in a practical, how-to format, it provides:

  • the history of the reform
  • 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 new role of the courts in enforcing human rights
  • the interaction between the Human Rights Tribunal and other administrative tribunals with concurrent jurisdiction
  • practical information and principled analysis to help those representing complainants, respondents, intervenors and the Commission

Benefit from practical tools such as:

  • the Human Rights Code and Human Rights Tribunal Rules of Procedure
  • a flow chart of the application process
  • a list of the Commission’s guidelines and policies
  • information on legal supports … and more.
