Human Rights laws don’t guarantee equal treatment in the general sense. In Ontario, and throughout Canada, your workplace must be free of workplace discrimination, harassment, and reprisal or differential treatment due to certain protected characteristics. It may be discrimination if you are treated differently because of your age, race, ethnicity, place of origin, ancestry, citizenship, religion, colour, sex/gender/sexual orientation, gender expression, marital/family status, or disability.
