Age restriction rant

Postby OnceHarmony on Mon May 02, 2016 1:57 pm

If age is one of the 11 grounds protected under the Canadian Human Rights Act why in Victoria are they allowed to have age restrictions in some buildings?

I've found some great places for our family to live except that they are 55+ buildings.

I just don't get it.

Hi Once Harmony,

I looked up age restriction under the Human Rights Code and it says

There are some situations where age restrictions are allowed:

A landlord can restrict rentals to people 55 & older in all seniors
buildings.

Just a FYI.

Sucks though.

Thanks mumsy.

And if 55 is now senior then I'm doomed.
