Research, Educate, Advocate and Convene for Human rights
The work of the HRREC is essential to better understand, advance, and support human rights in Canada and beyond. By promoting human rights through a dynamic and rigorous action-research approach, we add value to global and national progress on human rights through the original research and outreach activities of our members, and our partners. By building on links with relevant actors in government, civil society, Indigenous Communities and academia for events, knowledge exchanges, research projects and other initiatives, the HRREC also offers training opportunities for students and civil society organizations on cutting edge concepts and methodologies. Based on this work, we have composed an exciting programme of activities and events over the coming months and we want to invite you to join us!

Our ambition is to reach further in order to serve and support the needs of tomorrow’s students and community partners—with increased and enhanced program offerings, advocacy with global impact, and more intensive training reaching more communities.
