Human rights are about the inherent dignity and equal rights and protections of all people. Human rights are also concerned with ameliorating historical discrimination and inequality.
In Ontario, every person is afforded rights and protections under the Human Rights Code related to services, good and facilities; residential accommodation; contracts; employment; and within vocational associations. Discrimination and harassment are prohibited within these areas on a variety of grounds including age, race, place of origin, disability and accommodation, and sexual orientation.
Experiencing discrimination or harassment can be distressing and challenging to deal with. The lawyers at Wray Legal LLP have many years of experience representing and advocating for our clients’ human rights.
