BC’s Office of the Human Rights Commissioner exists to address the root causes of inequality, discrimination and injustice in B.C. by shifting laws, policies, practices and cultures. We do this work through education, research, advocacy, inquiry and monitoring.

BC’s Human Rights Commissioner, Kasari Govender, started her five-year term on September 3, 2019. Over the coming months, she will build our team and structures, and visit various parts of B.C. to inform her strategic priorities.
