Constitutional Law

The right to life, liberty and security of person. Freedom of peaceful assembly. The right to equal protection under the law. These are just a few of the rights and freedoms guaranteed to every citizen according to our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. In Canada, it’s what dictates the relationship between us and our government at federal, provincial and municipal levels. Despite the protections afforded by these two acts, many Canadians are discriminated against by both the private and public sectors.

The Charter of Rights and Freedoms establishes the basic rights and freedoms of Canadians, including:

  • Freedom of conscience and religion

  • Freedom of thought, belief, opinion, and expression

  • Freedom of peaceful assembly

  • Freedom of association

  • Basic equality

  • The right to life, liberty, and security of person

  • Protection from unreasonable search and seizure

  • The right not to be arbitrarily detained or imprisoned

Meanwhile, the Ontario Human Rights Code is designed to protect Ontarians from various forms of discrimination, including that based on:

  • Race, ethnicity, or colour

  • Nationality

  • Religion or creed

  • Gender or gender identity

  • Age

  • Sexual Orientation

  • Disability

At Hartman Law, we believe that true equality means protecting the most vulnerable. That’s why we use the Charter to protect your rights and freedoms, and when a violation occurs, we work to get a remedy for you.

If you have experienced discrimination or a violation of your rights and freedoms, you may be entitled to monetary compensation and other forms of restitution. We will walk you through all of your legal options and build your case, whether you are challenging the municipal or federal government.
