60 years of the Ontario Human Rights Code

The Ontario Human Rights Code was established in 1962 to make Ontario a place that recognizes the dignity and worth of every person, where people are able to enjoy equal rights and opportunities without discrimination. On June 15, 2022, the Code turns 60. For the past 60 years, the Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) has been working to protect, promote and advance human rights in the province through education, policy development, public inquiries and litigation. We are not doing this work alone. Many people across Ontario are also making important contributions to advance human rights and equity – and we invite all Ontarians to celebrate these contributions.


Celebrate the past, embrace the future

For 60 years, the OHRC has moved forward together with the communities it serves. As important members of those communities, we invite you to help us celebrate the past and move into the future. Here are the things to watch for:
