The Canadian Tribute to Human Rights is located in Ottawa, Ontario and is a monument that was originally designed as tribute to the ongoing struggle for human rights across the globe. The Canadian Tribute to Human Rights group, was the body responsible for overseeing the design competition of the monument, the construction of the monument, and preparing all the language plaques which included English, French, and 73 indigenous First Nations languages. All the plaques contain an inscription with the words ‘Equality, Dignity, and Rights’. The Canadian Tribute to Human Rights organization continues to operate and is considering additions and improvements to the monument.
The fonds includes correspondences between George Wilkes, a member of The Canadian Tribute to Human Rights board and representatives from 26 of the 73 language groups represented on the monument; translations of the words meant to be inscribed; and different design ideas for the individual plaques.
