Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  The commission is what is referred to as an organization tasked with screening, or performing the first step. The commission has used the declaration on a regular basis in its presentations and its pleadings, as well in its promotional, prevention and policy development work.

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  Good evening. I would like to begin by acknowledging that we are meeting on the traditional territory of the Algonquin people. Thank you for inviting the Canadian Human Rights Commission to take part in your study into Bill C-262. I'm joined today by Valerie Phillips, the commi

Human Resources committee  I think my colleague suggested “trusted person” or “designated person”, which could indeed be a solution.

Human Resources committee  In my view, directing a person who is the victim of harassment to their supervisor is not the solution. The person needs assistance and support. They must feel they can rely on a trusted person. I completely agree with my colleague. It must definitely not be the supervisor. In mo

Human Resources committee  Absolutely. One of the positive things that the Canadian Human Rights Commission does is help complaints, especially in harassment cases, from start to finish, right to the tribunal. Clearly, our role is to serve the public interest. The commission is there to work with those p

Human Resources committee  For the Canadian Human Rights Commission, I cannot tell you exactly how long it takes to process complaints. What is important to us is that sexual harassment and harassment complaints are given priority. We work on a case-by-case basis. There are certain mechanisms in the Canadi

Human Resources committee  I really understand what you are saying. At the Canadian Human Rights Commission, we have been working for two and a half or three years on simplifying many of our complaints processes. We have explained them in layman's terms and have made an online form available. We also have

Human Resources committee  I would add that, as regards human rights, which are quasi-constitutional, the definition has to be broad. If there is a definition, it must be open, and people must be able to identify with the act. If a person is the victim of harassment or violence, the important thing is for

Marie-Claude Landry

Human Resources committee  What we said is that we think it's not necessary, but that if there is one it's really important that the definition be open and non-exhaustive. It should be something in which people will find themselves, so that when they look at the act, the law, and the definition, they will

Human Resources committee  Good evening. Thank you for inviting the Canadian Human Rights Commission to take part in your consideration of Bill C-65. As the chair noted, I am accompanied by Ms. Fiona Keith, senior legal counsel with the commission. This bill is a positive step towards preventing all form

Status of Women committee  Let's say first that there are many ways to do segregation or isolation. People need to understand that. In federal institutions, we can use a lot of words to define it, but it's all the same. Let's take an example. When people are at risk of self-injury, what are the instituti

Marie-Claude Landry

Status of Women committee  Certainly. In my opinion, it's to empower the community, for sure, and to raise awareness and give them the resources and the help they need to be informed and to address the different challenges they have to face. It's certainly one part of addressing the systemic discriminati

Marie-Claude Landry

Status of Women committee  Thank you for your question. My first recommendation is simply stop studying, start implementing. We must stop conducting studies. Studies have been done for a number of years. There was Ms. Arbour's study and several others prior to that. There was the study of the Canadian
