Human Rights and Discrimination

In Ontario individuals cannot be discriminated against based on the fourteen grounds listed in the Human Rights Code. These grounds are as follows:

  • Race
  • Ancestry
  • Place of origin
  • Colour
  • Ethnic origin
  • Citizenship
  • Creed
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation
  • Age
  • Record of offences
  • Martial status
  • Family status
  • Disability


Individuals should be free from discrimination when it comes to areas of employment law.

There are certain exceptions to the discrimination provisions. If you are unclear call me a Mississauga Employment Lawyer.
