Suffering a breach of one’s Human Rights can be humiliating, enraging, and often costly. When your Human Rights are violated you are often entitled to significant compensation to make up for this.
In accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code, no person in Ontario can be legally discriminated against because of race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, marital status, family status, disability or the receipt of public assistance. This applies to the offering of services, accommodations, employment, and in many other spheres of life.
If you believe you have experienced discrimination or harassment, you can file an application with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO). The HRTO resolves claims of discrimination and harassment brought under the Human Rights Code in a fair, just and timely way. The HRTO first offers parties the opportunity to settle the dispute through mediation. If the parties do not agree to mediation, or mediation does not resolve the application, the HRTO holds a hearing.
While the Canadian legal system takes breaches of Human Rights very seriously, filing a Human Rights Complaint can be both confusing and difficult. It is in your best interests to be represented by a professional who can protect your interests and advance your position at every step of the process, and who can advise you on what to expect next.
