OTTAWA, June 23, 2015 /CNW/ - The Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) has produced a series of videos, now on its YouTube channel, to help people in Canada deal with discrimination and navigate the human rights complaint process.
Using live actors as well as animation, "Human Rights and You: A video series" tells the stories of Lily and Dan — two fictional characters using the CHRC complaint process to deal with workplace discrimination. Lily's story is about sexual harassment and Dan's story is about discrimination related to age and disability after a workplace injury.
The actors speak directly to camera, telling viewers their story and, in the process, the viewers learn what to expect when making a discrimination complaint. The CHRC hopes the videos, which are available in both official languages as well as closed-captioning, will be used as teaching tools by educators, social workers, lawyers, NGOs, community centres and human resources managers.
The CHRC will distribute DVDs of the videos to individuals who are considering making a discrimination complaint.
