What is the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario Application Versus the ICTA?

Human Rights Tribunal Update

As you are aware from previous updates, the ICTA has been named as a Respondent in four identical Applications (joined as one) before the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario.

In early 2016, four people applied to the Tribunal for a review of the ICTA Mixed League format which, in fielding twice as many men as women, appeared to them to be discriminatory. The Applicants argued that their experience was that women were being turned away from playing. The ICTA argued that many clubs complained that it was difficult to find even four  women per team per match night to play.

The matter was scheduled for a hearing, on February 13, 2017, but was adjourned, on consent, so that surveys could be conducted.

Recently, we conducted two surveys: a member survey and a players’ survey.  Feedback was robust:  we received in excess of 2,000 responses to the player survey alone.

The survey questions were a joint product of a sub-committee of the Executive, on the one hand, and two of the Applicants, on the other.


The survey results may be helpful in modifying some aspects of the Mixed League in the future.  That said, the parties are not able to reach a consensus, from the data and the reports generated from it, that would result in a settlement of the Applications.

Accordingly, the matter is proceeding to a hearing of the issues, on August 24 and 25, 2017.

We will update you thereafter.



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 120 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 must pay an annual fee of $30.00 by the Spring AGM and $60.00  by April 15 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.
