Your rights as an applicant are defined by applicable human rights legislation that is intended to ensure all individuals have equal employment opportunities without regard to:
- national or ethnic origin,
- family or marital status,
- a pardoned conviction,
- sexual orientation
Human rights legislation is not intended to prevent candidates from being chosen based on skills that are required for the position. A particular skill or qualification can be specified if the preference is based on a bona fide occupational requirement.
