On Monday (January 15, 2024), the Province released important information related to its implementation of the Human Rights Remedy. The Interim Progress Report contains vitally important information to show the DRC and the Nova Scotia public: where things stand regarding Remedy implementation, as well as what in fact the Province has done by way of reforms.
This is the first Report released under the terms of the Remedy and provides the public with its first opportunity to learn how well the Province is actually implementing the Remedy. All the information released today can be found on the Human Rights Commission’s dedicated Remedy web page: https://humanrights.novascotia.ca/remedy#progress
The DRC—and the Public—will now need to carefully review Monday’s disclosure of information.
The Province’s next report will be its Annual Progress Report, due May 31st. From there the Independent Expert Monitor will carefully review the information released On January 15th and on May 31st to provide a Report by the end of July with its assessment as to whether the Province has provided the required disclosure of information and whether it is in compliance with its legal obligation to remedy the systemic discrimination against persons with disabilities.
