Human Rights

Human rights in Canada have, since the 1970s, been protected in various provinces through provincial human rights codes and by the federal Canadian Human Rights Act.

With some variation under these human rights codes, it is prohibited to discriminate against persons on the basis of race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, family status or disability.

We assist clients in advising them on their rights, drafting complaints and representing them before provincial and federal human rights tribunals in Canada including the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission, Canadian Human Rights Commission and Canadian Human Rights Tribunal.
