Equity and Human Rights in Canada

This course encourages students to think critically about what public policies might advance "human" rights. It examines the development of human rights thinking in Canada as reflected in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Canada Human Rights Act, provincial codes, landmark Supreme Court rulings relating to Aboriginal peoples, disability, race, religion, gender and sexual orientation, and internationally, in United Nations conventions, covenants and declarations. Students are encouraged to situate an understanding of human rights issues within a broader social, political and economic framework. (Canadian). Formerly PPA 521
