Your rights In housing

Everyone has rights that must be respected by their landlord and landlord’s agents (for example, building managers).

You are protected against discrimination and harassment:

  • when you rent a home
  • while you live there

No one can treat you differently on the basis of the personal characteristics that are prohibited grounds for discrimination under the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms.

What are the prohibited grounds for discrimination?
