An Intersectional Approach to Discrimination: Addressing Multiple Grounds in Human Rights Claims
Ontario Human Rights Commission
This resource includes a Canadian-based framework for a contextualized intersectional approach to analyzing discrimination in multiple grounds complaints. The Ontario Human Rights Commissions provides a description of the intersectional approach, as well as other approaches to multiple grounds, such as human rights and charter cases.
