ALBERTA HUMAN RIGHTS DOES NOT PROTECT SENIORS RIGHTS SECTION $ 4
Human rights in providing goods, services, accommodation or facilities
The Alberta Human Rights Act recognizes that all people are equal in
dignity, rights and responsibilities when it comes to provision of goods,
services, accommodation or facilities customarily available to the public.
In fact, most of our day-to-day public interactions are covered by
Section 4 of the AHR Act.
Section 4 prohibits discrimination in the provision of goods, services,
accommodation or facilities customarily available to the public on the
basis of the following protected grounds:
place of origin
gender (including pregnancy, sexual harassment, and gender identity)
source of income
BUT NOT AGE!
Age is not a protected ground under this section of the ALBERTA HUMAN RIGHTS Act.
