The Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) is cracking down on discrimination against the disabled, particularly in the workplace.

Chief commissioner Keith Norton made the statement at the unveiling of a new policy. (The complete policy is available on the OHRC's Web site: www.ohrc.on.ca.)

He said the commission won’t wait for complaints, but will be proactive in uncovering cases of discrimination.
