The Anavets Senior Citizens’ Housing Society applied for dismissal of a claim from a tenant alleging discrimination due to age and disability in violation of the Human Rights Code. The tenant claimed that Anavets did not respond to his complaints of a disruptive neighbour appropriately or in a timely enough manner. Anavets argued that it had considered and addressed the complainant’s complaints and undertaken additional actions in response to them, and that none of its conduct was related to the tenant’s age or disability. The British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal found that Anavets had provided a reasonable, non-discriminatory explanation for its conduct, that it had responded appropriately to the complainant’s concerns, and that proceeding with the Complaint would not further the purposes of the Code. The application to dismiss was granted and the Complaint was dismissed. Fasken Martineau advised The Anavets Senior Citizens’ Housing Society with a team that included David Wong and Jacqueline Gant.
