Alberta moves to protect gender identity, expression in human rights law

 

EDMONTON (The Canadian Press)— Alberta has put forward legislation to prohibit discrimination based on gender identity and gender expression.

The changes are part of a bill introduced Thursday that, if passed, will become part of the Alberta Human Rights Act.

“No Albertan should be denied basic services for being true to themselves,” Justice Minister Kathleen Ganley told reporters.

“This change will increase access to justice and make it clear that discrimination on the basis of gender identity and gender expression is against the law.”

Once the bill passes, Alberta will join Saskatchewan, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, Ontario, Manitoba, and the Northwest Territories, which have similar bans in place.
