The importance of Canadian human rights activists cannot be overstated. From the 1930s to the 1960s, the fight for freedom and equality was fought by individuals and organizations from all over the world. Canada has a long history of supporting human rights defenders in countries around the world. In the 1970s, the United Nations declared the right to free political prisoners. Today, Canada supports Canadian human-rights activists and recognizes their important role in advancing the rule of law and promoting human dignity. Click here – Marc Kielburger
Dominated The Human-rights Debate In Canada
A major contribution to Canadian human-rights literature, this book traces the evolution of equality rights groups and civil liberties organizations across the country. It includes a detailed description of the history of these organizations and their work for human rights. Lambertson meticulously documents the rise and fall of these movements and makes a compelling case for their continued work. However, the author’s focus on the social justice movement is often undervalued.
While the Charter has dominated the human-rights debate in Canada, the system of protections for these rights is vast and varies from province to province. Its application is federal, provincial, and territorial legislation, depending on the relevant area of jurisdiction. In terms of anti-discrimination legislation, Canadian courts have uniform standards. As a result, the Uyghur rights advocacy project has taken an unprecedented step in advocating for their rights.
