The New & Improved Ontario Human Rights Commission

[CP] Ontario residents filing human rights complaints will have faster service and access to free legal support as a result of changes to the province’s Human Rights Code taking effect Monday.

The legislation also removes a $10,000 cap on awards for “mental anguish” caused by discrimination.

The law also outlines that individuals can now be compensated for injury to dignity, feelings and self-respect.

Other changes to the law include an extension of the window to file a complaint to one year from six months.

The rest.
