Protection from Discrimination and Harassment
Genesis Property Management Group Inc.: Protection from Discrimination and Harassment Policy
Genesis Property Management Group Inc. is committed to providing for the rental, and other lawful occupancy, of its apartments, free of unreasonable discrimination, including harassment. This is in keeping with its obligations under The Human Rights Code (“The Code”).
Tenants have the right to lease, and lawful occupants to occupy, rental apartments (and their guests, to visit) without being treated differently, to their disadvantage and without reasonable cause, on the basis of a characteristic protected under The Code. They also have the right not to be harassed based on a protected characteristic.
Characteristics protected under The Code are ancestry (including colour and perceived race), nationality, ethnic origin, religion, age, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), gender-determined characteristics, sexual orientation, marital or family status, source of income, political belief, and physical or mental disability.
Tenants also have the right to reasonable accommodation of special needs that are based on protected characteristics under The Code, such as disability.
Tenants who believe that they have been discriminated against in their application for, or occupation of, rental housing with Genesis Property Management Group Inc. are asked to please report the problem to Jennifer Betsill, in writing, to email@example.com.
Tenants who require reasonable accommodation of a special need that is based on a protected characteristic under The Code, are asked to please make their request to Jennifer Betsill, in writing, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tenants may be required to provide reasonable information in support of their accommodation request.
Staff will take a tenant’s complaint or request for reasonable accommodation seriously, and will get back to the tenant in a timely manner, after looking into the matter.
If a tenant believes that a staff is failing to take appropriate action with respect to a complaint of discrimination, a report of discriminatory harassment, or a request for reasonable accommodation, the tenant is asked to please contact Genesis Property Management Group Inc., in writing, to email@example.com.
