Summative evaluation of the Human Rights Program : Évaluation sommative du Programme des droits de la personne




It looks at both the grants and contributions component of program as well at the role the program plays in managing the Continuing Committee of Officials on Human Rights and reporting to the United Nations under the international human rights treaties that Canada has ratified. [...] Through the UN Charter, members of the international community, including Canada, reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women. [...] The UDHR states that "recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world." Human rights are highly dynamic and evolving, and since then these basic principles have been elaborated upon, extended into new areas of concern, and given greater legal force. [...] Organizationally, the HRP was previously part of the Multiculturalism and Human Rights Branch, however, following the transfer of the Multicultural Program to Citizenship and Immigration in 2008, the Human Rights Program has been temporally reporting to the Executive Director of the Heritage Group within Canadian Heritage. [...] Limitations All of the medium and long-term outcomes of the Human Rights Program are quite broad and achievement of the goals is not solely the responsibility of the program.
