Call for Tribunal Members

Nunavut Human Rights Tribunal Coral Harbour, NU

Job Description

CALL FOR TRIBUNAL MEMBERS ON THE NUNAVUT HUMAN RIGHTS TRIBUNAL

The Minister of Justice has an immediate opening on the Nunavut Human Rights Tribunal.

This Tribunal, established under the Human Rights Act, ensures all people of Nunavut have equal opportunity to enjoy a full and productive life.

As a Tribunal member, you will be required to adjudicate – which means to “judge” or “decide” on matters that come before the Tribunal. Having an adjudicative role also means decisions must be made by following legal rules and principles.

Tribunal members should be individuals who are respected members of the community and have experience in dealing with social issues. Oral and written fluency in either Inuktitut, Inuinnaqtun, English or French is essential as membership requires writing decisions. You will also be expected to attend a minimum of one annual meeting, six regular monthly meetings, and preside at mediations and hearings that come before the Tribunal.

Members should be available for at least 10 hours per month to deal with matters that come before the Tribunal, travel to annual meetings and attend hearings within the Territory. Training will be provided. Members of Tribunal will be paid honoraria for the days their services are required and any travel costs incurred.
