Our human rights work involves both bringing and defending human rights complaints, as well as advising on and preparing human rights policies.

The Power Law team has a depth of experience handling a wide variety of human rights matters in jurisdictions across the country, whether governed by the Canadian Human Rights Act or by provincial or territorial human rights legislation. We advise both institutional and individual clients on matters of equality, discrimination, harassment, and the duty to accommodate.

Of note is our extensive experience in all matters related to human rights in the field of education, at the pre-school, “K-12”, postsecondary education levels, and all questions related to the freedoms of expression and religion, and the constitutional right to Catholic education that exists in certain jurisdictions.

Power Law has also represented national public advocacy organisations before the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal.
