Human Rights Institute of Canada fonds

  • UAA-2013-051
  • Fonds
  • 1928-2012

The Human Rights Institute of Canada fonds contains the records of the Human Rights Institute of Canada and its founder and president, Marguerite Ritchie. The Human Rights Institute of Canada is an independent, not for profit, non-partisan research group which conducts and promotes research into issues that impede equality for Canadians, as per the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, with a specific focus on women’s equality. This Institute was founded by Ottawa based lawyer, Marguerite Ritchie, a former lawyer for the Department of Justice and Vice-Chair of the Anti-Dumping Tribunal. The fundamental premise of the Institute was to provide expert legal research to the Canadian people in the same way that the Department of Justice gives legal advice to the Government of Canada. As founder and President, Marguerite Ritchie set the tone for the Institute and this fonds also contains her papers from before she founded the Human Rights Institute of Canada.

The materials in this fonds date from 1934 to 2013. Materials from the Human Rights Institute of Canada are from 1973 to 2013, while legal research materials date back to the 1700s. The fonds pertains predominately to Canada, with some research on the United States of America (USA), Europe, the Soviet Union (USSR), the Middle East, and Africa. With the exception of United Nations conferences and research on Israel, most of the research on other nations and regions is for a point of comparison for rights, equality, and politics.

The fonds contains three types of materials: those of Marguerite Ritchie from her personal life and career before she founded the Human Rights Institute of Canada, those relating to the functioning of the institute, such as administrative records, and those relating to the work of the Institute produced mainly by President Marguerite Ritchie. Documents from the work of the Human Rights Institute of Canada is the largest portion of the fonds. Materials produced by the Institute were generated mostly by the projects it was involved with, including tracking issues over the course of years and its efforts to publicise its research in the media and the government. This fonds does not contain working papers of volunteers. Function based Institute records document the Human Rights Institute of Canada’s founding, its procedures, funding, support, and organisation. Materials of founder Marguerite Ritchie contain research from her work at the Department of Justice and the Anti-Dumping Tribunal, Anti-Dumping Tribunal procedures, her personal experiences facing sexism and gender discrimination while working for the federal government. It also includes her personal research on women’s issues which she began while working for the Department of Justice and which became a life-long passion.

The Human Rights Institute of Canada addresses issues of women’s equality, human rights, the United Nations and international law, Canadian laws and equality, the functioning of government, equality in the justice system, the relationship between the federal governments and the provinces, and funding and support for the Institute. Major projects the Institute worked on to address these issues include Persons Case II, Senate reform, the Meech Lake Accord and Charlottetown Accord, status equality for aboriginal women, the Expropriation of Nanoose Bay, the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples and the high arctic relocations, the Royal Commission on the Status of Women and following the development of the status of women, Quebec separatism, and the Official Languages Act and bilingualism. The most common document types are newspaper clippings, memorandum, correspondence, press releases, reports, legislation, House of Commons and Senate debates, committee minutes and proceedings from Parliament, promotional materials, and government publications. Newspaper clippings are mostly annotated with citations and marginalia. The fonds also contains a significant number of Dialogue magazines; Marguerite Ritchie was a long time contributor to this magazine, which publishes reader contributed articles on political and social issues from a variety of perspectives.

Ritchie, Dr. Marguerite E.

PE000368 - Drawing 1961 - Edmonton Civic Centre Development Project

Architectural drawing [diazo], scale 1”:100’, titled “Civic Centre Development Project”, City of Edmonton Planning Advisory Commission, Edmonton Alberta, April 6, 1961.

Part of a collection of materials related to the planned Edmonton Civic Centre in the 1960s. In the early 1960s, Webb & Knapp, a large land development company, entered into an agreement with the City of Edmonton to develop a proposal for a new downtown civic centre. The agreement contained provisions such that Webb & Knapp would fund the cost of the proposal, and if the proposal were to be approved, Webb & Knapp would receive considerable land rights in the development area as compensation. However, were the proposal to be rejected, the proposal itself was to become property of the City of Edmonton. The proposal by Webb & Knapp was ultimately rejected, but not until after the City of Edmonton Planning Commission developed its own proposal that, Webb & Knapp argued, made significant use of the original proposal. Webb & Knapp sued the City of Edmonton, ultimately winning a decision on breach of copyright in 1970.

Collection includes memorandum of agreement between the City of Edmonton and slated developers Webb & Knapp, architectural plans from Webb & Knapp as well as the City of Edmonton, cityscape photographs, and an artist’s concept rendering. PE000368 (F-8-0-0-5) to PE000375 (F-8-0-0-12).

  • “Cripple Tom.” Tells the story of a poor boy with one leg who converts his father to Christianity by preaching the story of the resurrection. The father asks for help in overcoming his addiction to alcohol.,
  • Two copies of “‘It’s All in the Blood’ ‘……And without shedding of blood is no remission’ (Heb. 9:22).” Tells the story of a prominent business man and church goer who is sick and visited by a friend. Argues that the only entrance to heaven is through believing in the blood of Jesus Christ.
  • “Delivered by the Power of God!” Tells the story of Old Tim, whose addiction to alcohol ruined his family and his life. Drawn to a church service by the congregation’s singing, Tim discovers the forgiveness of God and his long-lost son, who is the preacher at the church.
  • “‘It’s All in the Blood’ ‘……And without shedding of blood is no remission’ (Heb. 9:22).” Tells same story as above. Last page is titled “Just One Thing Wanting.” This page explains that all “good virtues in a man are just a row of cyphers” if that man has not accepted Jesus Christ.
  • “His Niagara Falls” by S. E. Burrow. This tract describes a vulture that eats a drowned buffalo so greedily that it does not notice its claws getting stuck in the carcass and then it is pulled by the current over Niagara Falls to its death (depicted on the cover). It compares this to a travelling salesman succumbing to drink and gambling and then dying poor and without Christ.
  • “Where Hell Is.” Tells a brief story of a tract distributor and quotes Heb. 2:1-4.

The third, “I am not Going to a Christless Grave – Are You?,” tells the story of an evangelist whose tract distribution saved a young conductor from going to a Christless grave.

  • “Only 2 Classes!” Exhorts readers to decide which class, path and death is theirs – that of saved sinners or lost sinners.
  • “A Christmas in Prison.” The story is told to the first-person speaker, “Kain” by the Governor of a prison in Michigan City. He explains how a small girl was reunited with her father, in prison for murder, on Christmas. The girl and her father become Christians and the father’s reformation gains him a pardon.
  • “Beautiful Snow.” Tells the story of a fallen woman who died young in “the early part of the American war.” With her personal effects is the poem “Beautiful Snow” which is found and appreciated by American poet Thomas Buchanan Read. The poem is seven stanzas made of rhyming couplets which tell of the woman’s fall and salvation through Christ. It is followed by another poem titled “That Name,” which is about Jesus.
  • “Do You Need An Alarm Clock?” Explains that though people may be resentful of being awakened, many people are in spiritual slumber and require the alarm clock of the evangelist. Signed “C. D. Carter.”
  • “Did You?” Through a series of questions argues that atheism has never saved anyone from the power of sin. Is specifically critical of the work of Thomas Paine and Robert Ingersoll.

  • "Ready Now.” Tells the story of a poor orphan in Liverpool whose poverty and piety unintentionally charm a steamer Captain into employing him on his ship. The boy falls ill and, on his deathbed, converts the Captain to Christianity.
