Abstract green icon representing discrimination


September 14, 2022, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

We envision a province in which we are all free from inequality, discrimination, and injustice. These free, introductory educational sessions seek to educate the public about B.C.’s Human Rights Code, a human rights law relevant to everyone in the province. These sessions will be held throughout the year and they relate to three settings protected by the Human Rights Code: Housing, Employment and Services.

The upcoming session covers the area of housing. Every person has the right to be free from discrimination whether they are renting or buying a place to live, or participating as a member of a group like a strata or a housing co-op. Please join us during this interactive session and learn about your rights and responsibilities as they relate to housing.
