The Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission has delivered training workshops to government, business, schools and non-profit organizations.  

Human rights training provides an opportunity:

  • To build participants' understanding of human rights and the Nova Scotia Human Rights Act. 
  • To help organizations and individuals understand barriers to equity and inclusion to the workplace. 
  • For participants to reflect on and change attitudes to help build respectful and inclusive environments.

The topics addressed are tailored to organizational need and include race relations, disability, accommodation, diversity, discrimination, gender, employment equity, lgbtq+ rights, harassment and defining a respectful workplace. Workshops may cover developing and implementing effective policies, conflict resolution and organizational change. Follow-up sessions are available for those interested in implementing programs in their own organizations.
