Manitoba Human Rights Commission / La Commision Des Droits de la Personne du Manitoba


Preparing for a Hearing

If the Commission decides that there is enough evidence to support a complaint and the parties cannot resolve the complaint through mediation, the Commission will request that a member of the Human Rights Adjudication Panel be appointed to make a final decision about the complaint. The adjudicators are not employed by, or otherwise connected to the Commission.

The Commission's lawyers represent the public's interest in eliminating discrimination and appear before the adjudicator as a party to the complaint. In the adjudication process, the Commission is responsible for proving the complaint and suggesting remedies that will ensure the Respondent complies with The Human Rights Code. For more information see our Guide to an Adjudication Hearing.

The Human Rights Adjudication Panel is an independent administrative tribunal and is made up of adjudicators appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. The Human Rights Adjudication Panel controls its own processes.
