In Ontario, there are multiple areas in which are protected against discrimination. These include race, ancestry, ethnic origin, citizenship, colour, religious beliefs, disabilities, gender, pregnancy, sexual orientation and gender expression and family or marital status. Discrimination based on these areas goes against human rights.

If you feel that you are being discriminated against at work, consider reaching out to a discrimination lawyer. They can help you to understand your rights as an employee and will know the next steps to take to defend your rights.
Can my employer fire me for being pregnant?
Your employer is not allowed to fire you because you are pregnant.
