The Ontario Human Rights Commission is seeking new ways to stamp out an old and all too persistent problem – racial profiling. It is trying to create a new policy to combat it in a range of institutional and community settings. The policy will also help enable Ontario organizations, legal decision-makers and affected community members to better identify, assess, address and prevent racial profiling as a prohibited form of discrimination under the Ontario Human Rights Code.
