Human Rights Tribunal Update

As you are aware from previous posts, the Association was named as a Respondent in proceedings before the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. In early January 2016, four Applicants (since reduced to three) applied to the Tribunal for an Order requesting that the Mixed League Fixture Structure be amended so that it features an equal number of men and women. The Tribunal released its Decision and found that the Fixture format is discriminatory.

The Executive called a special meeting for August 1, 2018 to ask the membership if they wished to appeal the HRTO decision and if they wished to retain our incumbent law firm of Ross and McBride. The membership voted to appeal this decision and to retain Ross and McBride as legal counsel.

Reconsideration was filed with the HRTO on August 13, 2018 and was denied on January 19, 2019. The ICTA is currently filing a Judicial Appeal of the decision to Divisional Court.

We will keep you updated.

 


 

The InterCounty Tennis Association was founded in 1962 by Forbes Mountain who played out of the Brampton Tennis Club in Brampton Ontario Canada. The InterCounty Tennis Association is dedicated to the advancement of team tennis in Southern Ontario.

Over 90 clubs presently belong to the ICTA. Member clubs to the ICTA stretch from Pickering to Oakville and from Toronto's downtown Lakeshore to King City, Caledon and beyond.

Member clubs of the ICTA pay an annual fee of $30.00 and $60.00 for each team entered in league play. Clubs wanting to join the ICTA should notify the President, and introduce their club at the Annual general meeting in October or the Spring Meeting in March.

Requirements for new clubs are availability of 2 courts minimum (please consult each League's rules for more details), lights (if there are evening teams), and provisions for washrooms.
