Human Rights Workshops

What Are The Human Rights Workshops?

Designed to help at-risk newcomers, Human Rights Workshops are a series of small group interactive tutorials that are intended to raise awareness of human rights and ethics and how they relate to Canadian society. Speakers at these workshops explore topics of equal opportunities, discrimination, family status, and sexual orientation (among others) in an attempt to reduce the vulnerability of newcomers and raise their awareness of their rights and responsibilities in Canada.

This project is provided in partnership with the Calgary Community Network Association and Calgary Workers’ Resource Centre and is open to all clients of CIES and the community.
