Policy and Guidelines on Disability & Duty to Accommodate
Ontario Human Rights Commission
There are several new features in this Policy and Guidelines, which replaces the 1989 Guidelines. These Guidelines establish how persons with disabilities in Ontario have the right to equal treatment, which includes the right to accessible workplaces, public transit, health services, restaurants, shops and housing.

This submission emphasizes the need to balance the rights and responsibilities of housing providers, people seeking protection under the Human Rights Code and all other residential tenants.
