This summary report is a short version of a longer, more comprehensive report. Both of these reports have been prepared based on a province-wide consultation on rental housing and human rights by the Ontario Human Rights Commission (the Commission).
A key goal of these reports is to help people and organizations across Ontario better understand human rights in rental housing. Housing providers, governments and others need to feel “right at home” in understanding what obligations exist and how to fulfill them. Tenants also need to feel “right at home” in being able to access and live in rental housing that is free from discrimination. As the recommendations and commitments in the “Framework for action” show, we all have a role to play in understanding and eliminating housing discrimination in our province.
