Centering on the 1982 Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, this multifaceted national conference explores Canada’s experiences in societal development over the past four decades, and where Canada might head in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. This online public conference on November 8 to 10, 2021 brings together academic scholars, policy experts, practitioners and community groups to assess the role played by the Charter and human rights policies in contributing to Canadian citizenship through individual and collective rights.

At a special November 4 to 5, 2021 Action Lab, a group of community leaders will deliberate on the human rights issues that were identified by stakeholders at our June 2021 workshops, and develop solutions that can be proposed for legal, policy and practice changes.

Vasant Chotai, Canadians For A Civil Society President, presents at 12:30-1:30 PM on November 8th. He will be reporting on the Prototypes For Action – a Report from the Human Rights Action Lab. 

Satya Das, Co-founder of Canadians For A Civil Society, presents at 1-1:30 PM on November 9th. His presentation is on the Being & Belonging project based on his recent book, Us

The book is available for free as compliments from the Canadians For A Civil Society for all Albertans.
