What we do

Through advocacy, support, and human rights education, we assist people who have experienced discrimination. Some ways we achieve this are:

  • Communicating with police, government, organizations, corporations, or other individuals on a client's behalf

  • Assisting individuals to access information regarding their human rights

  • Preparation, support, and assistance in filing human rights complaints with the BC Human Rights Tribunal and the Canadian Human Rights Commission

VIHRC is able to work within the parameters of the BC Human Rights Code. Please visit our page on human rights law to learn more about the Code and what constitutes a human rights complaint.

VIHRC provides services in both official languages.
