How do I file an Application under the Human Rights Code?

If you decide to file a discrimination application at the Human Rights Tribunal because of something that happened to you during the G20, you must do so within one year of the discriminatory event.

The application form will require you to show how you were treated differently than others, or subjected to negative treatment, because of a personal characteristic that is associated with a prohibited ground of discrimination. In other words, your application must clearly explain the connection between a personal characteristic recognized by theHuman Rights Code (such as your ethnic origin or race) and the negative treatment you experienced.

The application form will also ask you to identify the remedy or redress that you would like the Human Rights Tribunal to order if you are successful in proving that you were subjected to discrimination.
What remedies can be ordered by the Human Rights Tribunal?

The Human Rights Tribunal has the power to order a very wide variety of remedies to compensate you if you are successful in proving your discrimination claim. As an applicant, you may request monetary or non-monetary remedies.

Monetary remedies can include compensation for special costs that you incurred as a result of the discrimination, such as health care costs, as well as compensation for lost wages. The Human Rights Tribunal can also order that you receive a financial award for the emotional impact of the experience of discrimination.

Non-monetary remedies can include more long-term or systemic changes, such as mandatory policies to apply to special detention centres or special training of police officers ...
