Ontario Human Rights TribunalIn Ontario, you have the right to be protected against discrimination in the workplace, housing and services.  Many people aren't aware of their rights, how to get legal advice or think that hiring a representative will be to expensive.  A human rights claim must be filed within a one year of the instance of descrimination.  Licensed Paralegals in Ontario can help you assess your situation and provide you with sound advice on how to proceed further.  We can file applications on your behalf for the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal and the Human Rights Commission of Canada.

The Human Rights Code governs both the private and public sector and protect the citizens of Ontario from discrimination based on:

  • Age

  • Ethnic origin
  • Place of origin
  • Creed
  • Disability
  • Family status
  • Marital status (including single status)
  • Gender identity, gender expression
  • Receipt of public assistance (in housing only)

  • Sexual orientation.
  • Protected social areas are:
  • Accommodation (housing)
  • Contracts
  • Employment
  • Goods, services and facilities
  • Membership in unions, trade or professional associations.

Some common examples are:

  • Accomodations: A landlord trying to evice a disabled tenant;
  • Employment: Dismissing an employee which on maternity or paternity leave;
  • Discrimination based on culture or religion;
  • Goods, services and facilities: Being denied into a restaurant, mall or public area because you require the use of a service animal.
  • Our firm represents companies and individuals as either applicant (the person making the claim) or respondent (the person/organization the claim is against). 

If you believe you may have a claim you should seek legal advice from one of our Litigation Paralegals.  We offer a free fifteen (15) minute telephone consultation.
