Human Rights in Yukon

The Yukon Human Rights Commission promotes equality and diversity through research and education and enforcement of the Yukon Human Rights Act.  If you feel you have experienced discrimination and would like to talk with someone, contact us.  If you are an employer, service provider or landlord and would like information on accommodations or human rights policies, contact us.

The Yukon Human Rights Commission assists both the complainant and the respondent and makes every effort to help settle complaints through mediation.

The complainant is the person who files a complaint. The respondent is the person or agency against whom the complaint is filed.
