The Ontario Human Rights Commission is seeking new ways to stamp out an old and all too persistent problem – racial profiling. This will include creating a new policy on combating racial profiling in a range of institutional and community settings. The policy will also help enable Ontario organizations, legal decision-makers and affected community members to better identify, assess, address and prevent racial profiling as a prohibited form of discrimination under the Ontario Human Rights Code.
This public lecture is part of a larger process to help the OHRC create a policy that reflects the many different experiences and perspectives of communities across Ontario.
This event is being hosted by York University’s School of Public Policy & Administration, Institute for Social Research, and Centre for Human Rights and the Ontario Human Rights Commission.
