Except where there is a genuine occupational requirement, it is discriminatory and contrary to the Human Rights Act [see Canadian Human Rights Act ( R.S. 1985, c. H-6 )] for a person or an employer to refuse to employ or to dismiss a person, or to discriminate against a person with respect to any term and condition of employment because of the persons race, color, ancestry, place of origin, political belief, religion, marital status, physical or mental disability, age, sex, including sexual harassment and pregnancy, or conviction for a criminal or summary conviction charge that is unrelated to the employment.

It is also contrary to the Human Rights Act for an employer to pay less to one sex for work that is similar or substantially similar to work performed by the opposite sex.
