Human Rights Tribunal Update
 As you are aware from previous posts, the Association has been 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 has now released its Decision and has 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. 
 
We will keep you updated.
