Admin History/Bio
In 1950, Canadian Jewish Congress through the Joint Public Relations Committee, was heavily involved in promoting and influencing public opinion in favour of an anti-discrimination law in employment. While this heading is a misnomer, Canadian Jewish Congress did its utmost to popularize the concept of civil rights, at that time not a widely accepted one.
Scope and Content
Series consists of general files of the Civil Rights Committee.
Notes
Series formerly described and cited as RG255.

Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series consists of records documenting the advocacy activities of the CRC in working for improved human and civil rights with Federal and Provincial governments regarding those freedoms which are, or should be, guaranteed to persons to ensure them non-interference from others, particularly power holders and legal authorities. Such civil liberties include; freedom from arbitrary arrest, or detention; freedom of speech; the right of lawful assembly; freedom of association and of movement; and the right not to incriminate oneself. Specific proposed (and enacted) legislation was to ensure equality of access to employment, education, and accommodation. As well, these files also document CRC advocacy activities to educate governments and society on the need for legislation to combat hate crimes and literature.
