A unique, practical program focused on assessing, balancing and resolving human rights issues, delivered by a highly distinguished faculty of Canada’s leading experts. This program sold out last year - reserve your spot early to avoid disappointment!
How deeply do you understand the complex world of human rights?
Interpreting and applying human rights legislation presents a complex and often unique set of challenges. At the same time, failure to comply with human rights laws can be very costly to organizations, both in terms of money and time spent defending claims, as well as the resulting reputational damage should an individual’s claim be upheld by the tribunal.
This comprehensive program was designed to give you the knowledge and practical skills to competently and confidently handle day-to-day challenges, as well as more complex human rights issues.
