Procedure under the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment

This Procedure is a guide that tells you what you need to do if you wanted to make a complaint about a country that has broken an agreement about human rights. If you are making a complaint in place of someone else, you will need to get permission from that person in writing, to have proof. This will need to be sent to the Human Rights Committee.

How does it work?

Books with No Bounds

Books with No Bounds is an initiative that was created by two young Indigenous girls from Southern Ontario who wanted to reach out to other children across Ontario. They read that if a child has books in their home, their overall education level is higher. Since, they have been getting donated books and providing them to famiilies and households in Northern Ontario and across the globe. Their website includes information on how to donate and volunteer opportunities. 

Stepping Up

The Stepping Up resource, created by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services in Ontario provides information on youth leadership and ways to engage youth to volunteer more frequently. It describes the initial steps of providing more opportunities for youth to step up, harnessing their contributions and includes different opportunities around Ontario (4-H, Premier's Council of Youth Opportunities, etc).
