Canadian Human Rights Institutions

The Canadian Human Rights Institutions Interactive Map highlights the robust landscape of human rights institutions across the country.

The interactive map includes federal, provincial and territorial human rights commissions and tribunals, as well as other legislated institutions, such as ombudsman offices, information and privacy commissions, and children and youth advocates, or the provincial and territorial equivalents to these offices. The scope of work, relevant legislation, and the link to the respective website are provided.

This is an ongoing, living project. The map is regularly updated to ensure it is both comprehensive and current.
