Human Rights Research and Education Centre

The Centre brings together educators, researchers and students from all disciplines because of the need to address human rights issues from a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspective.





Our Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC) celebrated its 40th anniversary during the academic year 2021-2022! We wanted to mark this accomplishment by remembering key moments of the Centre’s history.

Indigenous Affirmation

We pay respect to the Algonquin people, who are the traditional guardians of this land. We acknowledge their longstanding relationship with this territory, which remains unceded. 

We pay respect to all Indigenous people in this region, from all nations across Canada, who call Ottawa home. 

We acknowledge the traditional knowledge keepers, both young and old. And we honour their courageous leaders: past, present, and future.
