British Columbia – Filing a Human Rights Complaint

Instructions, Resources and Help lines

BC College of Physicians


If a business has denied you service for not wearing a mask or requested proof of vaccination, they could be held liable for a fine up to $75,000 (as it varies in each province) if you file a human rights complaint.

A business is not “private.”  When a business obtains a business license they are open to the “public” and they are not permitted to request proof of vaccination or discriminate against anyone who decides not to wear a mask. No exemption required as you have the right to choose.

The bottom line is that there is no law in Canada that states that citizens have to wear a mask. There is no legislation on wearing a mask because the government would be in violation of the Constitution, Charter of Rights, Bill of Rights and International agreements on Human Rights. You cannot force a medical treatment or interfere with a persons bodily autonomy or right to breathe freely.

Take off the mask, refuse the experimental “vaccine” and embrace your God-given inalienable right to breathe freely. You have the right to decide what goes into your body and the right to life, liberty and security of the person! 

Pursuant to section 52 of the Constitution Act, 1982, Canada’s constitution is its supreme law, and any law passed by any federal, provincial, or territorial government that is inconsistent with the constitution is invalid.

Federal Privacy Act: Nobody has the right to request to see an exemption. It is a violation of your privacy rights under the Privacy Act. This is your personal medical information between you and your physician.

Pursuant to s. 1 of the Privacy Act of B.C., RSBC 1996 CHAPTER 373, it is unlawful to violate the privacy of another person. Private health issues are strictly between an individual and their physician. There is no legal or any other obligation at law requiring anyone to divulge the nature of their medical conditions with anyone.

“The Privacy Act offers protections for personal information, which it defines as any recorded information “about an identifiable individual.”

The Human Rights Code prohibits discrimination based only on certain personal characteristics. Sometimes these are called “protected characteristics” or “grounds of discrimination.”


2. (1) No person shall publish, issue or display or cause to be published, issued or displayed any statement, publication, notice, sign, symbol, emblem or other representation that

(a) indicates discrimination or an intention to discriminate against a person or a group or class of persons, or

(b) is likely to expose a person or a group or class of persons to hatred or contempt

because of the race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation or age of that person or that group or class of persons.

3. (1) No person, without a bona fide and reasonable justification, shall

(a) deny to a person or class of persons any accommodation, service or facility customarily available to the public, or

(b) discriminate against a person or class of persons with respect to any accommodation, service or facility customarily available to the public,

because of the race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, sex or sexual orientation of that person or class of persons.
