HALIFAX - A lawyer with expertise in refugee matters is the new director and CEO of Nova Scotia's Human Rights Commission.
Krista Daley, 47, of Dartmouth left her job as the senior lawyer and director of legal services for the Canada Immigration and Refugee Board to take the position.
She had been with the board since 2001, and also spent a year as an adviser to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Geneva.
Daley said the chance to come back to Halifax appealed to her and she hopes her experience in public law and human rights will benefit people.
Daley said she doesn't have any specific priorities.
She said she's focused on learning about the organization, talking to groups and getting an understanding of how human rights issues have been handled in the province.
Daley has a three-year contract that will pay $131,000 a year.
