Social Condition as a Prohibited Ground of Discrimination in Canada

The project “Social condition as a prohibited ground of discrimination in Canada” is part of a Cooperation Agreement between the HRREC and the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC). The purpose of the project is to contribute to the CHRC’s research on socio-economic rights to the development of relevant policy on this matter.

During the Fall 2017 term, the HR Clinic will carry a critical review regarding the arguments used for and against including social condition as a prohibited ground of discrimination under the Canadian Human Rights Act. The research will assess the evidence that supports each argument and identify potential gaps.

Project Partner: Canadian Human Rights Commission
