The Canadian Human Rights Commission and the National Association of Friendship Centres are looking forward to working with each other.

The organizations announced yesterday that they would be teaming up to help Indigenous people fight discrimination in urban centres across Canada.

Friendship Centres are located in cities and towns across the country and work to provide services to Inuit, Metis, and First Nations people. Parry Sound’s Friendship Centre is one of 118 centres in the country.

According to a spokesperson from the Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres says this announcement is about laying the groundwork of how the organizations will work together in the future.

The details of what sort of programs will come from this partners are still being worked out, but there will be training for workers at the friendship centre on how to fill out human rights complaints.

The CHRC says this agreement is a year in the making.
