Social Condition

People experiencing some combination of low-income status, homelessness or precarious housing, reliance on government income support programs, unemployment or under-employment, and limited education face impediments to participation in economic, social, political, and cultural life, yet the Human Rights Code RSBC 1996, c 210 (the “Code”) does not prohibit discrimination based on social condition. 

The question of whether BC should prohibit discrimination based on social condition under the Code is not new. By prohibiting discrimination based on social condition under the Code, BC would be better equipped to prevent discrimination against a very vulnerable group of residents and the Code’s purposes would be better served.
