Changes to the Human Rights Code
Changes to The Human Rights Code and Human Rights Complaint Process
On January 1, 2022, changes to The Human Rights Code (“The Code”) will come into effect. These legislative changes were passed by the Government of Manitoba on May 20, 2021. This means that there will be important changes to how complaints are dealt with by the Manitoba Human Rights Commission (“Commission”) and the Manitoba Human Rights Adjudication Panel. All parties with active and unresolved complaints will be affected by these changes. For more information, read the Notice of Changes to The Human Rights Code [link to press release on changes].
