- The Canadian Human
Rights Act now protects Canadians from the discriminatory practice of
Harassment according to the Canadian Human Rights Act may include:
verbal abuse or threats; unwelcome remarks, jokes, innuendos or taunting
about a person's body, attire, age, marital status, ethnic or national
origin, religion, etc; displaying pornographic, racist, offensive
or derogatory pictures; practical jokes that which cause embarrassment.
And in 1988, the redress settlement with Japanese Canadians revoked
the War Measures Act and replaced it with the Emergencies Act. This
prohibits discriminatory emergency orders, permits Parliament to override
the emergency orders of the government and requires an inquiry into
the actions of the government after any emergency.
