Test for Prima Facie Discrimination
Faiz Lalani and Ranjan Agarwal write that the Supreme Court of Canada's recent decision in Quebec (Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse) v. Bombardier Inc. confirms that proving prima facie discrimination only requires showing that a distinction has a connection to a prohibited ground, making causation a less burdensome onus than in other civil liability claims.
