Human Rights

Canadian and international clients rely on the strategic insights and national scope of our team to provide practical, effective advice on Human Rights matters

Our firm is a true one-stop-shop for clients operating across multiple jurisdictions. Unlike boutique firms operating at a provincial level, our national human rights practice means that our lawyers are aligned to provide one point of contact and one perspective to clients. Instead of spending time trying to coordinate counsel in every province, our clients save time and money working with our team of seasoned practitioners.

Whether you need to develop corporate policies, provide educational training for managers and employees or defend against complaints of harassment or discrimination, you can turn to our lawyers for knowledgeable and practical advice. We know the law and we know the operational realities of your workplace.

We can advise you on policy and represent you before provincial and federal tribunals. With our strong national presence, we can guide you in developing and implementing policies for your employees across multiple Canadian jurisdictions.

We assist clients across Canada in all areas of human rights law, including:

  • Developing and reviewing corporate policies and procedures for conformity with human rights legislation;
  • Accommodating employees in the workplace;
  • Training managers and employees with respect to discrimination, harassment and their obligations under the law;
  • Conducting internal and external investigations;
  • Preparing responses to complaints;
  • Representing clients during human rights investigations and before human rights tribunals; and
  • Responding to allegations of human rights violations in the context of grievance arbitrations.

We combine the skill and flexibility of a boutique firm with the resources that only a full-service firm can offer.

Our clients represent the full spectrum of Canadian companies in all industries. From the plant floor to the office tower, they trust us to represent their interests in human rights.
