Human Rights Applications

At PooranLaw, we support people with a wide range of abilities, backgrounds and personal circumstances to ensure their voices are heard and their rights and interests are protected. Our lawyers provide advice and representation to clients who have experienced discrimination, harassment or violation of their human rights to help them obtain justice – whether that be monetary compensation or public interest remedies that may help address the systemic issues that lead to discrimination.

The Ontario Human Rights Code is the primary piece of legislation that protects human rights in Ontario. The Code protects the right to equal treatment in a number of social areas by prohibiting discrimination against and harassment of people based on a protected ground.

If you believe you’ve been discriminated against in a protected social area because of a protected ground, PooranLaw can help.

Contact us to find out more about filing an application at the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario.
