Description

About the conference and the Yukon

This year, the Canadian Association of Statutory Human Rights Agencies (CASHRA) conference theme is “The Time is Now: Change and Innovation in Human Rights Today.” This year’s conference will explore exciting emerging areas of law and policy, as well as innovations in public education and rights promotion. We will draw links between issues in different jurisdictions, and see challenges in a new light.

This year’s CASHRA conference takes you to the unforgettable setting of Canada’s North - Whitehorse, Yukon. Learn from the leaders in human rights in Canada, build your network, and take in unique northern experiences - all while under the legendary Midnight Sun.

We respectfully acknowledge that this year’s conference will be held within the traditional territory of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council.


Who should attend?

For decades, CASHRA’s annual conference has offered an extraordinary learning and networking opportunity for people working closely on human rights issues in Canada.

Specifically focused on the work and role of Commissions, this conference is a unique opportunity to engage deeply on the mechanisms for the promotion and protection of human rights. If you work for a human rights organization, are a professional in the field, work at a non-profit or NGO, or if you’re a student or an activist, this conference is a place for you to grow, learn, connect, and share.


Conference format

The Conference is a two-day event featuring plenary speakers and panels, technical and legal workshops, experiential sessions, and opportunities for connecting and networking. Back by popular demand, please join us for the annual CASHRA Legal Update from senior legal counsel on emerging developments in human rights law in Canada.

In addition to conference activities, there will be the chance to experience the Yukon and Canada’s North through interactive sessions and social events.


Workshop registration

We are currently finalizing the conference program. When all the workshops, seminars, and panels are final, we will email all registrants to sign up for their preferred options.
