The HRTO resolves claims of discrimination and harassment brought under the Human Rights Code, a law that protects people in Ontario from discrimination and harassment in five areas:
- accommodation (housing)
- goods, services and facilities
- membership in trade and vocational associations.
The Code prohibits discrimination and harassment on any of the following grounds:
- Place of origin
- Ethnic origin
- Sex, including sexual harassment and pregnancy
- Sexual orientation
- Gender identity
- Gender expression
- Family status
- Marital status
- Receipt of public assistance (Applies only to claims about housing.)
- Record of offences (Applies only to claims about employment and to criminal convictions for which you have received a pardon.)
- Harassment. The Code defines harassment as “a course of vexatious comment or conduct that is known, or ought reasonably to be known, to be unwelcome”. It includes offensive comments or actions directed at you that are related to one or more of the Code grounds.
