Have you been subjected to discrimination by a service provider? Restaurants, stores, and even government entities, including police services, can be subject to monetary and non-monetary orders for prohibited discriminatory conduct towards you.
In Ontario, provincially-regulated service providers generally cannot discriminate against you based on any of the following grounds:
Race; colour; ancestry; creed (religion); place of origin; ethnic origin; citizenship; sex (including pregnancy, gender identity); sexual orientation; age; marital status; family status; disability; receipt of public assistance; or a record of offences in respect of which a pardon has been granted under the Criminal Records Act and not revoked, or an offence under a provincial statute.
In the event that a service provider engages in unlawful discrimination, victims of discrimination may seek monetary compensation and other relief at the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. If you believe you may have been the victim of prohibited discriminatory conduct and would like to discuss your options, contact us for a free consultation.
