Biography / Administrative history

One of the Canadian Human Rights Commission's main roles is to process complaints in the area of discrimination in areas such as human rights, legal rights, equality rights, minority rights and democratic rights. The Complaints and Compliance Branch is responsible for processing these complaints. The process begins with an inquiry that is investigated by the CHRC. After that level, some cases are resolved through conciliation or are heard by the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal, the review tribunal, the Federal Court and in rare instances, the Supreme Court.
