Human Rights

Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms to which all human beings are entitled. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Ontario Human Rights Code and the Canadian Human Rights Act are all examples of laws that prevent the State from interfering with your basic rights. Basic rights include life, liberty, security of the person, freedom of speech and expression, and equality before the law.

These laws, among others, prevent discrimination based on several grounds including, but not limited to:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender
  • Sexual orientation
