Article Summary: 

The article discusses the legal obligation of condominium corporations in Ontario, Canada to provide a discrimination and harassment-free environment. They are also legally required to provide accommodation up to the point of undue hardship for needs based on a Code ground. The article emphasizes the importance of having a human rights policy that can provide an internal procedure for addressing accommodation requests and responding to discrimination or harassment complaints. The policy should inform owners and residents of the condominium corporation’s legal responsibilities, explain the steps for investigating harassment complaints and the process for making accommodation requests, and be easily accessible by owners and residents. The article also highlights the importance of procedural and substantive components of the duty to accommodate, and the need for everyone involved to understand and follow the policy.
