Human Rights – Saskatchewan

The Saskatchewan Human Rights Code prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity (Section 2(1)(m.01)). Gender expression is included within this. The Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission defines gender identity as “an individual’s internal and inherent sense and/or experience of gender.” The Commission defines gender expression as “the external representation of one’s gender identity.”

The Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission administers the Code. They provide a concise overview of the protected grounds, definition of discrimination, where you are protected, as well as accommodation, on their website. If you feel you have been discriminated against on one of the protected grounds, you must file a complaint with the Commission within one year of the alleged violation. For more information about how to contact the Commission and how to file a complaint, please click here.
