Community Partnerships that Work

Thanks to our partnerships with legal service providers and community agencies, we can reach more people and share information about taking legal action under the Human Rights Code with communities across Ontario.  Some of our community partners are listed below.

The Law Foundation of Ontario has a unique mandate to improve access to justice for the people of Ontario and has funded human rights training initiatives to assist community service providers in identifying discrimination claims.

The Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres (OFIFC) is a provincial Aboriginal organization representing the collective interests of member Friendship Centres located in towns and cities across the province. Friendship Centres provide the country’s most significant off-reserve Aboriginal service delivery. They are not-for-profit and charity corporations that are mandated to serve the needs of urban Aboriginal people by providing culturally appropriate services in urban communities. The HRLSC has been working with OFIFC to promote the use of Ontario’s human rights system to advance claims of discrimination and unequal treatment.

Osgoode Law School Program

Each year, the Anti-Discrimination Intensive Program (ADIP) of the Human Rights Legal Support Centre and Osgoode Law School provides up to 12 Osgoode second and third-year students with intensive training in anti-discrimination law as well as administrative law enforcement and resolution.

Anti-Discrimination Intensive Program

The Anti-Discrimination Intensive Program is an exciting collaboration between Osgoode Hall Law School and the Human Rights Legal Support Centre, which offers human rights legal services to individuals throughout Ontario who have experienced discrimination contrary to the Ontario Human Rights Code. The program offers students the opportunity to develop specialized knowledge of anti-discrimination law and to see an administrative law process from beginning to end.
