The Human Rights Commissioner's Office HRCO Annual Report is consistent with the requirement of Minister's Direction 6 to YRDSB:
"That the Board establish a robust Human Rights Office, properly staffed and resourced, that is responsible for human rights compliance, and processes and procedures to receive and respond to/investigate complaints of harassment and discrimination reported by staff, students and parents."
To ensure transparency and accountability, the HRCO, under the direction of the Human Rights Commissioner, shall submit an Annual Report to the Board detailing activities of the HRCO during the reporting period.
This Annual Report provides an important snapshot on the vital an ongoing role that the HRCO plays in addressing human rights complaints under Policy #240 and ensuring that YRDSB meets its legal obligations under Ontario’s Human Rights Code.
