Education & Resources

"Much discrimination is rooted in ignorance and education is essential to its eradication, and therefore it is important that human rights educational programs assist Manitobans to understand all their fundamental rights and freedoms, as well as their corresponding duties and responsibilities to others"  

-Preamble, The Human Rights Code

The Commission educates the public about The Human Rights Code through education seminars and workshops. We use a rights-based approach that involves working through scenarios to build the capacity of the participants to better navigate issues in their workplaces and avoid complaints.  
 
You can attend one of our sessions, or book us to provide a customized workshop at your workplace if you have a specific issue that you would like covered or wish to reach a large group.

We also present at conferences and other events on human rights issues and use our Connections Bulletin, website and social media to educate the public and promote human rights. 
 

In light of the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Human Rights Commission is currently only delivering training online via webinar only
