This course will examine the history, growth and current status of human rights in Canada by examining the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the federal and provincial human rights acts and the relationship between human rights and collective agreement rights.
We will then examine current human rights issues such as the inter-generational Aboriginal residential school legacy and the development of the Indigenous Truth and Reconciliation Commission; the accommodation of workers with disabilities; combatting systemic racism in employment practices; and the creation of safe workplaces for the LGBTQ+ community ( and possibly others).
Multiple guest speakers will present throughout the course.
