Every individual is free and equal in dignity and rights.
The Yukon Human Rights Commission (YHRC) promotes equality and diversity through research, education and enforcement of the Yukon Human Rights Act.
Rights. Responsibility. Respect.
The Yukon Human Rights Commission makes every effort to help settle complaints by assisting both the individual or group making the complaint and the individual or group to whom the complaint has been made against.
Disability Rights Opportunities
The Yukon Human Rights Commission (YHRC) is excited to announce it is partnering with Disability Rights Promotion International (DRPI) to develop and launch in 2019 a program of independent disability rights monitoring for Yukon.
