The Human Rights Code requires that members of the Tribunal possess:
- experience, knowledge or training with respect to human rights law and issues;
- aptitude for impartial adjudication; and
- aptitude for applying alternative adjudicative practices and procedures
Members of the Tribunal are appointed by the Government through an Order-in-Council from a list of candidates recommended by the Tribunal. The Tribunal develops this list by following an open, public and competitive recruitment process in accordance with the directives of the Public Appointments Secretariat and the requirements in the Code. This list of qualified candidates is then provided to the Attorney General for consideration.
