Human Rights Lawyers Serving York Region

All Ontario laws must comply with the Ontario Human Rights Code which provides that everyone ought to be free of discrimination and harassment, including in all aspects of their employment, housing and services.

The following is an excerpt from the Ontario Human Rights Commission:

“The Ontario Human Rights Code is for everyone. It is a provincial law that gives everybody equal rights and opportunities without discrimination in areas such as jobs, housing and services. The Code’s goal is to prevent discrimination and harassment because of race, sex, disability and age, to name a few of the 17 grounds. All other Ontario laws must agree with the Code.”

Where an individual believes that their rights have been breached on the basis of the projected grounds, an application can be filed with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario.

If you believe that you are a victim of harassment and/or discrimination on a protected ground, Donnell Law Group would like to represent you.
