Abstract

[1] This is an Application filed on October 22, 2012 under section 34 of Part IV of the Human Rights Code, R.S.O. 1990, c. H.19, as amended (the “Code”) alleging discrimination with respect to employment on the basis of race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, citizenship, ethnic origin, sex and marital status.
