Education Law

All students in Ontario have the right to equal treatment in educational services without discrimination based on a protected ground under the Ontario Human Rights Code, including disability. Education providers have a corresponding obligation to provide services in a manner free from discrimination, which requires that they provide appropriate accommodations to students with disabilities, short of undue hardship (which is a high threshold).

At PooranLaw, we provide advice and representation to students, parents and legal guardians dealing with issues in how education services are provided, including:

  • Decisions regarding the identification of students as “exceptional” in Ontario’s publicly-funded primary and secondary schools
  • Decisions regarding the placement of exceptional students in regular or special education classes
  • Discrimination against and/or accommodation of students at all levels of education, including primary, secondary and post-secondary institutions (including college, university and vocational)
