The individual responsible for chairing the agency's Human Rights Committee (HRC) meetings.
The HRC is charged with the protection of rights of people receiving services and supports. This committee is accountable for questioning every situation in which a person's rights are restricted or suspected of being restricted. The HRC is proactive in ensuring that people have full access to their rights as citizens as opposed to rights as consumers.
