Biography / Administrative history
The Human Rights Tribunal is a quasi-judicial body that was created in 1978 under the Canadian Human Rights Act. Originally reporting to the Canadian Human Rights Commission, in 1996/97 it became an autonomous body. The role of the Tribunal is to conduct fair and impartial hearings in accordance with the legislation in order to uphold the human rights of Canadians. The Tribunal hears complaints against federal government institutions, banks, airlines and other federally regulated employers and service providers. The cases it hears relate to discrimination in areas including race, sex, religion, marital status, equal pay for equal work, and hate messages. GARDD accession #1997-98/583
