Transcript Competing Human Rights eLearning Module 1


Hello and welcome …to the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s Competing Human Rights eLearning training.

More people are learning about their rights and standing up for them, and sometimes their rights conflict with the rights of others.

Competing rights issues are in the news, and organizations are planning for and dealing with competing rights issues in the workplace, in schools, in housing accommodation and in services. That’s why the Ontario Human Rights Commission (or OHRC) developed the Policy on Competing Human Rights.

By the end of this training, you’ll understand how to apply the key parts of this policy. Using interactive videos, short documents, and scenarios, you’ll learn about what competing rights are, and what types of situations are actually not competing rights. We’ll use a realistic scenario to go through the OHRC’s framework for analyzing and addressing competing human rights situations step-by-step. This is especially useful if you are looking for information on resolving competing rights issues, or want to develop competing rights policies and procedures. You’ll also learn the key legal principles that are essential for analyzing most competing rights situations.

Taking the full training will give you a good understanding of the OHRC’s Policy on Competing Human Rights. But this training is flexible - you don’t have to take the whole thing at once. If you’d like to focus on any part of the Policy, you can find the modules that will help and only take those portions of the training. Or, you may just want to see some examples of competing rights situations that are relevant to your work. And, since many of you will be sharing the information that you learn in this training with your colleagues and others, we’ve made all of our materials available for download.

We hope that this training provides the information you need about competing human rights. When you’re finished, please take the short survey. Your feedback will help us improve our eLearning resources. Thank you, and enjoy learning about competing human rights!
