Article Summary: 

The blog discusses a case where a condominium corporation was charged with discrimination for imposing restrictions on a resident's service dog. The author notes that under the Ontario Human Rights Code, people with disabilities have the right to equal treatment when it comes to housing, and that service animals are considered an important accommodation for people with disabilities. The blog goes on to outline some of the legal considerations that condominium corporations should keep in mind when it comes to service animals, including the need for an individualized assessment of each case and the importance of engaging in the accommodation process in good faith.
