The amendments to the Ontario Human Rights Code (the “Code”) which came into force in 2008, have brought about significant changes to the way in which human rights complaints are adjudicated in Ontario. Today, approximately six years after the amendments were brought into force, the number of complaints filed with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (the “Tribunal”) remains consistently high, especially with respect to employment. In the 2012/2013 fiscal year, the Tribunal received 2,837 applications and 77% of those applications arose in the context of employment.
