Located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the mission of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is to enhance the understanding of human rights, to promote respect for others, and to encourage reflection and dialogue.

"REALTORS® care about the communities they live in and get directly involved in making them better," says Barb Sukkau, OREA President. "The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is an embodiment of Canada's commitment to democracy, freedom, human rights, and the rule of law.
