Course Description

This course provides a critical examination of how the State manages the issue of human rights. It explores the development of human rights through the Charter of Rights and Freedoms; the Canada Human Rights Act; provincial codes; landmark judicial rulings; and the impact of United Nations conventions, covenants and declarations on Canadian state practices. Students are encouraged to situate an understanding of human rights issues within a broader social, political, economic and public administration framework.

Notes

This section of the course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
