This enactment amends the Canadian Human Rights Act to prohibit discrimination on the grounds of social condition. In doing so, it protects from discrimination people who are experiencing social or economic disadvantage on the basis of their source of income, occupation, level of education, poverty, lack of adequate housing, homelessness or any other similar circumstance.
