Webinar: Supporting access to post-secondary education and employment for students with disabilities -- Dec. 10th

The Human Rights Research and Education Centre of the University of Ottawa and Canada Without Poverty invites you to the interactive webinar:

"Making Rights Real: The Implementation of International Human Rights In Canada"

This webinar will address the following questions and more on the
implementation of human rights in Canada:

  • Did you know that Canada has committed itself to ensuring that everyone has a right to an adequate standard of living?
  • How would you go about claiming this right in Canada?
  • What does this right mean in times of fiscal restraint?
  • Does it mean different things for different groups of people?

Join us on Human Rights Day to explore strategies to implement social and economic rights in Canada.
