BC to re-establish human rights commission

Fresh Legislation introduced today intends to re-establish BC’s human rights commission.

Currently BC is the only province in Canada without a human rights commission after the previous version was dismantled in 2002.

Through ammendments to the Human Rights Act, the new legislation would create and independant human rights commissioner who would report to to the assembly.

That commissioner would be in charge of developing educational tools, policies and guidelines which promote human rights and combat inequality and discrimination.

The legislation is based off of an 8 week consultation held in 2017 which asked British Columbians what they most wanted from a human rights commission.
