Human Rights

Canada and all its provinces and territories have human rights laws that protect people from many types of discrimination. These laws are outlined in the Canadian Human Rights Act.

It is against the law to discriminate or harass people based on race, religion, sex, marital status, physical disability, mental disability, political opinion, colour, sexual orientation or age. If you feel you have been discriminated against, contact the Canadian Human Rights Commission, the Newfoundland and Labrador Human Rights Commission, or the Newfoundland and Labrador Human Rights Association.
