The Ontario Human Rights Code (the “Code”) protects an individual’s freedom from discriminatory or harassing behaviours based on religion.

In our secondary schools, this may mean people of different religious traditions, who seek education in a Catholic School because they recognize and value an educational vision centred on the primacy of God and the dignity of the human person as a child of God.

Those who are truly religious are not, in fact at one another’s throats over matters of religion, but respect the religious sensitivities of other religious communities.

Creed is interpreted by the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s 1996 Policy on Creed and the Accommodation of Religious Observances as “religious creed” or “religion.” It is defined as a professed system and confession of faith, including both beliefs and observances of worship.

Creed does not include secular, moral, or ethical beliefs or political convictions.

Such accommodations will be provided to staff members, students and their families.

It is understood that all students registered in TCDSB schools acknowledge that the school community proclaims, celebrates and cherishes its Catholic identity and traditions and that staff will teach the curriculum from a Catholic perspective.

The Code provides the right to be free from discrimination, and there is a general corresponding duty to protect the right: the “duty to accommodate.” The duty arises when a person’s religious beliefs conflict with a requirement, qualification or practice.

The Code imposes a duty to accommodate based on the needs of the group of which the person making the request is a member.

The Board recognizes, and is committed to, the values of freedom of religion and freedom from discriminatory or harassing behaviour, based on religion, through its human rights policy, equity and inclusive education policy, the safe schools policy and curriculum documents.

All of these will be informed by, and interpreted in accordance with, the principles of the Code.

The duty to accommodate must be provided to the point of undue hardship.
