What are my rights as an applicant during the interview process?

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:

  • race,
  • colour,
  • national or ethnic origin,
  • religion,
  • age,
  • family or marital status,
  • sex,
  • a pardoned conviction,
  • disability,
  • 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.
