In Nova Scotia, and throughout Canada, the various Human Rights Acts protect you from being discriminated against based on a number of protected grounds. Examples of this are issues in employment (like being denied promotions or termination of employment), or denial of services (like renting an apartment or being served at a restaurant). The protected grounds from discrimination include:

  • Race
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Religion (Creed)
  • Marital or family status
  • Pregnancy
  • Disability
