More information about Dyslexia Canada and the Human Rights Commission:

In 2020 together with our partners, Decoding Dyslexia Ontario, and the International Dyslexia Association Ontario Branch, we supported the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s Right to Read public inquiry into human rights issues that affect students with reading disabilities, including dyslexia in Ontario’s public education system.

Representatives of Dyslexia Canada attended four town halls, spoke at two, provided a written statement of support, conducted two media interviews and reviewed and provided feedback on an educator survey. Further, the three above groups worked together as part of a panel on October 29th at the Microsoft Dyslexia DecodEd series to discuss the inquiry and its impact.

Dyslexia Canada worked with two other provinces to successfully meet with their respective provincial Human Rights Commissions - resulting in the Human Rights Commission of Saskatchewan launching an investigation of their own.

As a result, Dyslexia Canada has helped launch a Provincial Human Rights Roundtable which brings together organizations and stakeholders from five provinces to share best practices, templates, tools and resources. Additional provinces will be included in 2021.
