Subject Description

Discrimination Assistance

Programs that provide assistance for people who believe that they have been treated unfairly or denied normal privileges based on their age, gender, race or ethnic origin, nationality, religion, disability, sexual orientation or marital status. In Canada, sources of income, same-sex partner status, criminal convictions, political belief and family status may apply. Discrimination protections may be covered by provisions of the U.S. Constitution or Canadian Charter of Rights, but are more frequently addressed by statutory law at the federal, state/provincial or municipal level.
