Why wasn’t my complaint accepted?

As someone looking to make a complaint, you must establish that there has been prima facie discrimination.

The criteria for this were defined by specific Nova Scotian case law. The Moore case found that a complainant must demonstrate the following:

  • The complainant has a protected characteristic under the Nova Scotia Human Rights Act.
  • The complainant suffered an adverse impact.
  • The protected characteristic was a factor in that adverse impact.
