History

The Human Rights Maturity Model (the Model) is the result of a collaborative initiative between the Canadian Human Rights Commission (the Commission) and organizations within the private and public sectors. The Model benefited from the guidance and commitment of all parties which provided a forum for advising on content, development and continuous improvement.

The Commission thanks all who assisted in the development of the Model which included representation from various organizations:

Pilot Test Phase

The Commission ended its one-year pilot test phase of the Model in September 2011. Six federally regulated organizations, as well as the Commission tested the Model. These medium and large-sized organizations – from the private and public sectors and involving unionized and non-unionized employees – recognize the value of diversity, inclusiveness and respect in the modern workplace and have begun to reshape their environment by implementing policies and practices that promote these objectives.

Pilot test organizations:

  • Bell Aliant
  • Canada Post Corporation
  • Canadian Human Rights Commission
  • Farm Credit Canada
  • NAV CANADA
  • Royal Canadian Mounted Police

Thank you to all the pilot test organizations who led the way towards the progressive, respectful workplaces of the future!
