2017 Human Rights Symposium - Beyond Labels
Canada’s human rights laws are based on what makes us different – our gender, our beliefs, our sexual orientation or the colour of our skin.

Could the very approach that has brought us so far, now be holding us back?

Is it time to focus more on what we have in common instead of what makes us different?

The Canadian Human Rights Commission’s 2017 symposium will challenge our thinking, our behaviour and the labels we use for each other and ourselves.

Human rights advocates, academics, employers, lawyers, engaged citizens from across the country will explore the future of human rights beyond labels as it relates to technology, our institutions, our workplaces, and our public spaces.
