On 24 June 2010, the Human Rights Act 2010 [Chapter H-13.1] was assented to and the Human Rights Code was repealed [L1.3].
The Human Rights Act 2010, Section 9 (1) provides-
For the purpose of this Act, the prohibited grounds of discrimination are race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, social origin, religious creed, religion, age, disability, disfigurement, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, source of income and political opinion [L1.3].
In December 1997, the provincial House of Assembly amended the Human Rights Code to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation in employment, housing, literature, and access to establishments and services [L1.3], [R1.2].
Newfoundland was one of four provinces or territories that did not ban discrimination based on sexual orientation, along with Alberta, Prince Edward Island and the Northwest Territories [R1.1].
