The College of Physicians and Surgeons recently asked for feedback on its “Physicians and the Ontario Human Rights Code Policy”.
You can see the call for feedback and the current policy at the College’s website here: http://policyconsult.cpso.on.ca/?page_id=3403. The deadline for feedback was August 5.
ISAC responded with a submission, which draws the links between poverty and discrimination and outlines some of the ways that a medical practice that respects human rights should take poverty into account.
