3. Prima facie discrimination because of disability

From: Policy and guidelines on disability and the duty to accommodate

Once a disability within the meaning of section 10 of the Code is established, the individual has the burden of showing a prima facie case of discrimination.

Discrimination under the Code can be direct (refusal to grant a job or provide access to services or housing, for example, because of a disability), indirect, constructive (adverse effect) or based on society’s failure to accommodate actual differences.

Introduction

From: Policy on height and weight requirements

The Code states that it is public policy in Ontario to recognize the inherent dignity and worth of every person and to provide for equal rights and opportunities without discrimination. The provisions of the Code are aimed at creating a climate of understanding and mutual respect for the dignity and worth of each person so that each person feels a part of the community and feels able to contribute to the community.
