Huberte Gautreau nominated to the Human Rights Commission - Congratulations to our past chair!

The Coalition for Pay Equity's past chair, Huberte Gautreau, has been nominated to the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission. On the occasion of the October 19th announcement, Gordon Porter, president of the Commission, said that the pay equity militant, along with the other two new commissioners, have "shown great dedication and leadership toward the achievement and promotion of equality and human rights."

After having led the World March of Women 2000 committee, as co-chair, Huberte Gautreau was president of the New Brunswick Coalition for Pay Equity from 2008 to 2009 and from 2001 to 2003. Huberte Gautreau received the New Brunswick Human Rights Award in 1995 and was the laureate for the Governor General's Award in commemoration of the Persons Case in 2004. As a nurse in community health, she worked abroad for many years. She was a professor at the Université de Moncton’s nursing school. During that time, she coordinated a project which promoted awareness of international solidarity, and worked as a sexual and sexist harassment counsellor. Since her retirement, she has dedicated her time to fighting for a pay equity law for the private and public sectors in New Brunswick, and to Conscience Canada.
Huberte Gautreau will work with the other provincial human rights commissioners at administering the Human Rights Act. She will therefore participate in the efforts of the provincial government agency in promoting the principles of equality, to provide education on human rights and to eliminate discriminatory practices.
