 The Charter of Rights and Freedoms of the Canadian Constitution[1] establishes equal protection and benefit before the law "without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability."[2]Moreover, there is a guarantee that all the rights in the Charter should be protected equally for women and men.[3]

The Canadian Human Rights Act of 1977 established that all Canadians have the right to equality, equal opportunity, fair treatment, and an environment free of discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, marital status and family status, in employment and the provision of goods, services, facilities or accommodation within federal jurisdiction. The Canadian Human Rights Commission oversees the protection of these rights.
