2007 Annual Report of the Canadian Human Rights Commission

The 2007 Annual Report of the Canadian Human Rights Commission was tabled today in the House of Commons.

Among the highlights of the past year, Chief Commissioner Jennifer Lynch points out:
  • the Commission's work for the repeal of section 67 of the Canadian Human Rights Act – that section denies First Nations citizens full access to human rights redress under the Act;
  • significant gains for disabled people; and
  • the selection of the Commission to lead the International Coordinating Committee of National Institutions for the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights, a body that coordinates over 60 accredited national human rights institutions
