We want to hear from you.

Your experiences, questions and concerns help us in our work to promote and protect human rights in our province.

We know this might be hard.

Your reasons for contacting us and the details you are sharing may be stressful, frustrating or even traumatic.

We ask you to be respectful.

We aim to be respectful in what we say and how we say it, and we ask the same of you.

We will do our best.

We will listen and respond as best as we can, but there are limits to the kind of information we can provide. We cannot respond to you as lawyers or counsellors.

We are responsible.

What you share with us affects us too. We care about our staff’s safety and well-being.

We also have a responsibility to follow the law, which protects our staff from harassing, discriminatory and threatening words and actions. We may restrict or end our communication with you if your language or behaviour is harmful (to us, you or others). If there are threats to others shared with us, we will also follow the law and take appropriate actions to keep people safe.
