The following are definitions of Harassment, Intimidation, and Discrimination.
- Harassment: According to the Ontario Human Rights Code, harassment is “engaging in a course of vexatious comment or conduct that is known or ought reasonably to be known to be unwelcome.”
- Intimidation (bullying) is repeated, abusive, health-harming mistreatment which can involve threats, violence or humiliation.
- Discrimination is the denial of an opportunity or differential treatment of an individual or group because of their perceived or actual membership in one of the protected groups identified in the Canadian Human Rights Act (i.e. race, national or ethnic origin, religion, colour, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, marital status, family status, genetic characteristics, disability or conviction for which a pardon has been granted or a record suspended).
Note: Discrimination, Harassment, and Intimidation can be verbal, physical or visual (gestures).
If you have witnessed or experienced any of these behaviours, and have questions regarding how to submit a concern or complaint, please consult the “Frequently Asked Questions” or alternatively contact the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
