All people

Everyone in Québec has rights. There are a variety of laws that guarantee and protect your rights. The Québec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms is the fundamental law that does so.

The Charter protects your fundamental rights and freedoms in all areas of life:

  • employment
  • housing
  • public space
  • contracts (insurance policies, leases, etc.)

The Charter also protects your rights in your private relationships, such as those with your:

  • neighbours
  • colleagues
  • relatives (for example, your mother, father, brother, sister or cousin)
  • teachers

The Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms protects everyone in Québec

This means that it protects:

  • adults and young people
  • people who were born in Québec, other parts of Canada and abroad
  • people who are visiting Québec (tourists, temporary workers)
