International Human Rights and Canada Database (IHRCanadaDB)

Human Rights Internet (HRI) and the Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC) of the University of Ottawa have launched a new online resource: the International Human Rights and Canada Database (IHRCanadaDb).

The database is a tool without parallel. It houses over 600 official documents, separated into three categories: instruments that are binding under international law (conventions/treaties); non-binding instruments, such as declarations of international organisations; and international monitoring documents, including jurisprudence of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and the United Nations treaty bodies, which oversee Canada’s compliance with its international human rights obligations. It includes official documents that set out international human rights standards and information about Canada’s official position vis-à-vis international human rights instruments.
