Welcome to the Human Rights Legal Support Centre
The Human Rights Legal Support Centre offers human rights legal services to individuals throughout Ontario who have experienced discrimination contrary to Ontario's Human Rights Code. Our services may include legal assistance in filing applications at the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, and legal representation at mediations and hearings.
Summer 2014: Stop Police Carding: the Centre is working with community-based organizations and the Law Union of Ontario to meet with community members who believe they have been stopped unfairly by the police on the basis of their race. The Centre and the Law Union will provide legal assistance in applications to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario.
What’s New at the Centre
Diversity in our workforce: in 2014, the HRLSC conducted an employment equity survey of its management team. The results show that the HRLSC management team has continued to build on the diversity of our workforce as a whole.
Improvements to our services: the HRLSC is now representing more than twice as many people at mediations before the Tribunal.
A Game of Forums: the story of an injured worker who lost his job after getting stuck in beaurocratic red tape – and the resolution that the HRLSC helped him negotiate.
