The Saskatchewan Human Rights Code protects your right to equality without discrimination based on the protected grounds of disability, age (18 or more), religion or religious creed, family status, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, race or perceived race, nationality, place of origin, ancestry, colour, or receipt of public assistance.
It’s against the law for someone to discriminate against you for any of these reasons in contracts, education, employment, housing, professional trades and associations, publications, purchase of property, occupations, trade unions or public services.
If you think someone has discriminated against you, you may make a complaint within two years of the incident. Contact our office and explain your situation to an intake consultant. You will be asked to fill out an intake questionnaire. (see above) If you need assistance completing the form, we will be happy to help you. An intake consultant will then assess your inquiry and let you know if we can proceed.The SHRC website also offers classroom resources such as several useful videos and opportunities to invite SHRC speakers.
