In Ontario, as well as the rest of Canada, every single resident has the right to be treated fairly and equitably in every aspect of life, regardless of race, sex, or disability. The Ontario Human Rights Code is in place to ensure that the residents of Toronto and all regions of Ontario are treated in that very manner. The fact that this code exists does not mean that everyone believes that they should play by the rules. Discrimination still very much exists in both the public and private sector, but if you feel that you have had your rights violated, you do have a way to fight back.
There are many people out there who feel that these types of rights violations are restricted to being denied a job or a place to rent due to gender, skin color, or physical disability, but the issue is a good deal more far reaching than that. Yes, those types of scenarios tend to be the ones that are the most common, but there are many more besides. Being denied access to a club or association is another personal issue, while in the private sector, companies may find that they are denied contracts on the basis of nothing other than the physical make-up of the company.
The problem here is that too many individuals and businesses see their situation as the status quo, believing that they have no real recourse when they are denied a job or a house for the umpteenth time. This is where Toronto paralegals come into the picture, as they can look at your case and see if there are grounds for you to make a claim against the person organization allegedly denying you of your basic human rights. If it is found that there is indeed an issue, then your case will be accepted and diligently worked on to produce a positive resolution.

Preparation is the most important part of Tribunal advocacy. When the members realize that the representative is well prepared, it imparts positive light in their thinking. We help in preparing for the case which includes interview of the witnesses, researching the facts and laws and getting a proper grip of the opposing counsel’s reports. Understanding the weak points of the case is also necessary other than only pointing out the strong points. We help in properly dissecting each and every aspect of the case.
