Description

Canada Without Poverty would like to invite you to join us for our online Economic and Social Rights course: Putting Poverty in the ‘Rights’ Place: An Intro to Economic & Social Rights in Canada and BC.

Poverty is a violation of human rights. People living in poverty are deprived not only of finances, but often of the freedom and ability to live with dignity. Ending poverty is about justice and economic and social rights are the foundation.

This course will walk you through the meaning of economic and social rights in both Canada and BC and why it is important to recognize human rights are at the root of addressing social challenges. Over 2 weeks, leading human rights experts, including the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Housing, Leilani Farha, will help you work through reading material and discussions to help you get better acquainted with economic and social rights and how they apply to poverty in Canada.

Important course details:

  • The course is two weeks in length and will run from Friday, July 14th to Thursday, July 27th
  • ES Rights experts will join discussions each week and help facilitate conversations
  • Discussions will be focused on themes, including an introduction to economic and social rights and their application at all levels of government in both Canada and British Columbia
  • An online platform is used that allows for various discussions which you can join in at any time of the day by posting comments
