Respecting Rights

Respecting Rights is a project at ARCH that is led by self advocates labelled with intellectual disabilities.

Since 2011, Respecting Rights has provided innovative, accessible rights education to persons labelled with intellectual disabilities and their support networks across Ontario. Respecting Rights also works on accessible law reform projects. Our work builds the capacity of persons labelled with intellectual disabilities and their support networks through education and support for self-advocacy.

ARCH is grateful to have been awarded funding from the Special Projects Initiative which will be critical in supporting and expanding this program. These funds were made available through the settlement agreement in the institutional abuse class action against the Government of Ontario regarding the Huronia Regional Centre.

For further information on the exciting developments with this project please contact Sue Hutton, Respecting Rights Coordinator at huttons@lao.on.ca
