Adults living in Canada are used to making decisions about their own lives, whether it be where to live, what to eat, what to wear, or how to spend their money. Canadians understand free decision-making to be one of our basic rights. People
with disabilities are no exception. Generally speaking, Canadian laws presume that people living with disability are capable of making their own decisions, just like everyone else. However, the laws governing decision-making are specific
to each province and territory throughout Canada. While there are many similarities across the country, there are also some key differences.
What are my rights? Can a landlord refuse to rent to me because of my disability? What should I do if I think someone has acted against my rights? This toolkit answers common questions about human rights in Canada. It also gives
