Human Rights Commission Panel of Adjudicators

On March 13, 2019, the Lieutenant-Governor appointed the following individuals to the Human Rights Commission Panel of Adjudicators for three-year terms:

  • Kimberley Horwood
  • Glenda Best
  • Brodie Gallant
  • Kellie Cullihall
  • Christian Hurley
  • Valerie Hynes

Where the Human Rights Commission determines that a complaint should be sent to a board of inquiry for a hearing, the complaint is referred to the Chief Adjudicator of the Panel. The Chief Adjudicator may hear the matter or refer the matter to another adjudicator.

The adjudicator shall inquire into the matters referred to him/her and give full opportunity to all parties to present their evidence and make representations through counsel, or otherwise. Where an adjudicator finds a complaint to be justified they may grant a remedy under section 39 of the Human Rights Act, 2010.
