A man who uses a wheelchair asked the board of his condominium corporation to install a ramp so that he could access the building. At first, he was told that he would have to pay for the ramp but the board later agreed to pay. However, the board choose a design for the ramp that would not meet our client’s needs. The board would not consider the design even though our client was able to put forward a less costly option.

The Centre negotiated a settlement that included:

  • Financial compensation for the discrimination;
  • Installation of the ramp requested by the resident at no cost to him.
