BCN Staff

With moving season around the corner, le Comité de défense des droits des locataires, with the support of  the Table logement Brome-Missisquoi, is starting a new campaign to raise awareness in Brome-Missisquoi about the discrimination that tenants continue to face, and recommend possible remedies. 

According to a press release, the committee is made up of eight local organizations, such as ACEF montérégie-est, Action Plus Brome-Missisquoi, Cellule Jeunes et Familles de Brome-Missisquoi, Centre de femmes des cantons, and Entrée chez soi, and the campaign, titled Un toit sans discrimination, is meant to educate the population on the different forms of discrimination that people continue to face in the housing market.

In Quebec, under the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, tenants are protected from discrimination. Discrimination in housing is prohibited under law.
