April 27, 2022, 10:00 am - 11:30 am

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 employment. Whether you are an employer, employee or both there is a legal obligation to have human rights protected in the workplace.  Please join us during these interactive sessions and learn about your rights and responsibilities as they relate to this area.
