Discrimination and Harassment
Discrimination is a distinction made on the basis of a person’s race, gender, religion, colour, ancestry, national or ethnic origin, physical disability, mental disability, family status, marital status, political belief, or sexual orientation that creates a disadvantage to that person. Discrimination may include but is not limited to:
- words, gestures, actions or practical jokes, with the result of humiliating, alarming or abusing another person
- distribution or display of offensive pictures or materials.
Harassment is a form of discrimination that consists of unwelcome words or conduct. In order to be guilty of harassment, the person engaging in this behaviour must know or ought reasonably to know that the behaviour is unwelcome. Harassment may be accompanied by expressed or implied threats or promises of rewards.
