UNITED FOR A BARRIER-FREE ONTARIO

READ WHAT THE HUMAN RIGHTS TRIBUNAL, HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION AND HUMAN RIGHTS LEGAL SUPPORT CENTRE HAVE DISCLOSED AS OF JANUARY 23, 2012 ABOUT THEIR WORK ON ENFORCING THE ONTARIO HUMAN RIGHTS CODE UNDER BILL 107

January 23, 2012

SUMMARY

On November 14, 2011, we wrote Ontario's Human Rights Tribunal, Human Rights Commission, and Human Rights Legal Support Centre, to ask for detailed information on how Ontario's Human Rights Code is now being enforced. Those letters are available at: http://www.aodaalliance.org/strong-effective-aoda/11152011.asp

We and many others need this information to give our input to the Review of Ontario's Human Rights System which the McGuinty Government appointed Toronto lawyer Andrew Pinto to conduct. For more on that Review, visit: http://www.aodaalliance.org/strong-effective-aoda/08292011.asp 

As of January 23, 2012, we have received responses from all three human rights agencies. They answer many of our questions, but clearly not all of them. We make these public here.
