PRO­TECT­ING HU­MAN RIGHTS IN ON­TARIO

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

In June, 1962, the On­tario Hu­man Rights Code was cre­ated to pre­vent dis­crim­i­na­tion and ha­rass­ment be­cause of race, colour, an­ces­try, sex, sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion and nu­mer­ous other grounds.

The code re­placed the Fair Em­ploy­ment Prac­tices Act, Fe­male Em­ploy­ees’ Fair Re­mu­ner­a­tion Act, the Fair Ac­com­mo­da­tion Prac­tices Act, as well as the On­tario Anti-Dis­crim­i­na­tion Com­mis­sion Act.

In 1977, the Cana­dian Hu­man Rights Act was passed by the Par­lia­ment of Canada. It deals with all types of dis­crim­i­na­tion and ap­plies across the coun­try.
