Provincial and Territorial Human Rights Commissions

In April 2014 the Ontario Human Rights Commission released its Policy on preventing discrimination because of gender identity and gender expression. This policy looks at the barriers faced by transgender Ontarians and examines how to eliminate discrimination.

Under the Ontario Human Rights Code (the Code) people are protected from discrimination and harassment because of gender identity and gender expression in employment, housing, facilities and services, contracts, and membership in unions, trade or professional associations.

Here are the provincial and territorial Human Rights Commissions. You may want to visit your provincial/territorial Human Rights Commission’s site to see what is happening locally on LGBTQ2S rights.
