“Sorry, it’s rented.” Measuring Discrimination in Toronto’s Rental Housing Market

November 22, 2009

Our 2009 discrimination audit report presents the results of a survey on housing discrimination in Toronto’s rental housing market. For this study, CCHR created profiles of renters to assess levels of discrimination on the basis of race, family status, disability and receipt of social assistance. The study found significant discrimination by housing providers against all five profiles.

This report was produced by the Canadian Centre for Housing Rights (CCHR) – at the time called the Centre for Equality Rights in Accommodation (CERA).
