Papers and Reports

The Manitoba Human Rights Commission takes a position on issues that impact human rights in Manitoba and across the country. 

We often form these positions by first consulting with the public to find out what your opinions are.

We also consult with the public or sections of the public to gather lived experience and other information to develop educational resources on new and emerging human rights issues.
