Quebec moves to ban services for people with covered faces

Bill 94, introduced on March 24, would set limits on accommodations made by the public service under the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms. Bill 94 explicitly prohibits the provision of public services to people whose faces are covered, including a Muslim woman wearing a niqab, a face veil that only shows a woman’s eyes. In general, the bill states accommodations must only be made if they do not impose undue hardship on the service provider.
