The Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission has named Dr. Fatima Coovadia as a new commissioner.
The provincial government made the appointment on Thursday. It will last for the next five years.
“Dr. Coovadia is an ardent advocate of social justice who has worked diligently to build a harmonious, diverse and vibrant citizenry in this community,” Chief Commissioner David Arnot said in a statement. “Her commitment to equality and inclusion will help the SHRC in the pursuit of its public education and complaint resolution mandates.”
Holding a bachelor of dental surgery and a master’s degree in health administration, Coovadia has also worked in classrooms throughout Saskatoon as part of the Think Good. Do Good.
Coovadia will join Arnot’s team alongside other commissioners Janice Gitlin, Barry Wilcox, Colleen Cameron, Heather Kuttai and Michael San Miguel.
