The Manitoba Human Rights Commission is the agency responsible for carrying out the provisions of The Human Rights Code (Manitoba). It is an arms-length agency, funded by the Manitoba Government.

The Commission enforces the anti-discrimination provisions of The Code through its complaint process. Anyone, including a group or organization, can file a complaint if it is believed that a practice or policy results in unreasonable discrimination. In determining whether discrimination has occurred, it is the effect, not the intention that counts.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:

Beatrice Watson has devoted both her working and personal life to ensuring peace, equality and justice. As an outreach and liaison officer with the Manitoba Human Rights Commission, Beatrice has spoken to hundreds of Manitobans about their rights and responsibilities under the Human Rights Code. Beatrice is the founder of Global Eyes Magazine, a quarterly publication highlighting the activities, contributions and issues of Manitoba’s African and Caribbean communities. Originally from Guyana, Beatrice has lived and worked in Manitoba for more than 25 years, as a strong advocate in the African and Caribbean communities.

“Learn more about Manitoba’s Human Rights Code which protects individuals and groups in Manitoba from discrimination. This session will provide helpful information on such topics as what “reasonable accommodation” means and outline the complaint process if an individual or group believes they have experienced discrimination or harassment.”
