The Coalition’s educational program builds awareness of human rights legislation and provides skills training to help prevent discrimination before it happens. We work with community groups, employers, labour councils and unions, colleges and others to provide a range of training, from introductory to intensive, on a variety of topics including:

  • The Basics of Human Rights Law and Policy;
  • Workplace Discrimination – What Every Organization Needs to Know;
  • Duty to Accommodate – What the Law Says and How to Apply it;
  • Compliance Education – Educating Employees and Developing Non-Discriminatory Human Resource Practices; and
  • The Complaints Process – How it Works and What to Expect.

Download and view a copy of our Human Rights in the Workplace brochure.  It outlines a series of six modules designed specifically for employers.  All modules have a preventative focus while providing tools and resources that can be applied on a day-to-day basis.

The Coalition also has a fee for service education and consultation program where we can deliver tailored training to meet identified need.
