British Columbia has a law to protect and promote human rights.
It is called the BC Human Rights Code or the Code. The Code protects you from being treated badly or denied a benefit because of your race, the colour of your skin, your ancestry or your place of origin (where you were born). It allows you to file a complaint with the BC Human Rights Tribunal if you believe you have been discriminated against.
