SYSTEMIC discrimination is discrimination resulting from the dynamic interaction between decisions and attitudes that are tinged with prejudice, as well as from organizations models and institutional practices that have prejudicial effects (intended or not) on groups protected by the Québec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms.
Example: The under-representation of some visible minorities in employment sectors and executive or management positions may be the result of systemic discrimination.
The grounds of discrimination prohibited by the Charter include race, colour, sex, gender identity or expression, pregnancy, sexual orientation, civil status, age, religion, political convictions, language, ethnic or national origin, social condition, a disability or the use of any means to palliate a disability.
