January 6, 2021
Ontario’s Court of Appeal has found that the University of Waterloo discriminated against a potential student through failing to provide accommodation within the admissions process. The article explains that applicant Roch Longueépée applied to UWaterloo in 2013, but was turned down as “unlikely to succeed.” CBC says that the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario initially found that UWaterloo had treated him with compassion; when Longueépée appealed this decision, the divisional court found that UWaterloo had failed to accommodate Longueépée during the admissions process.
