Human Rights


Do you feel you have had your rights violated?


Human Rights violations take place in our society every day.  The Human Rights Code of Ontario protects the rights of individuals in the following areas: Services, Accommodation, Contracts, Employment, and Membership in Vocational Associations.


No person has the right to discriminated against or to be harassed for any of the following:


      • age
      • race
      • ancestry
      • place of origin
      • colour
      • ethnic origin
      • citizenship
      • creed
      • sex
      • sexual orientation
      • gender identity
      • gender expression
      • marital status
      • family status
      • disability

If you feel that someone has infringed on your rights in one or more of these areas, BLC Legal Services can help you determine the best course of action.  You may be  able to file an application with the Human Rights Tribunal and have your matter addressed before them. If they find your rights have been violated you may be entitled to compensation depending on the situation.
