    From: Under suspicion: Research and consultation report on racial profiling in Ontario

    Racial profiling is a specific type of racial discrimination that pertains to safety and security. The OHRC currently defines racial profiling as:

It is not acceptable to choose to ignore discrimination or harassment based on creed, whether or not a human rights claim has been made.
