Newfoundland/Labrador - Filing a Human Rights Complaint

Newfoundland/Labrador – Filing a Human Rights Complaint

Instructions, Resources and Help lines

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 person’s 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.
