Summary
"Canada's recent ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRDP) reflects a new and conscious commitment by all levels of government to take proactive measures to eliminate disadvantage and achieve full inclusion for persons with disabilities. We believe that the Convention and the Supreme Court of Canada's decisions in Meiorin and Grismer offer different articulations of the same big idea -- that accommodation, properly understood, mandates genuine inclusiveness. Our question in this paper is: is the jurisprudence of tribunals and courts helping us to fulfill that promise?"

The big idea, the promise of Meiorin and Grismer: Meiorin untangled doctrinal knots and adopted a unified approach to discrimination analysis; Adverse effects discrimination should not be given an undeserved cloak of legitimacy; The real question is whether the discriminatory impact could have been avoided; Human rights analysis should not legitimize systemic discrimination; Human rights legislation must be interpreted liberally and purposively; The focus of discrimination analysis should be on adverse effects; Towards a unified approach; Proof of Prima Facie discrimination does not require evidence of stereotyping; Meiorin was applied in Grismer; Conclusion -- Part II. The promise under attack: A divisive question - can discrimination exist without stereotypes?; Adverse effects discrimination must not be rendered inactionable; The analytical distinction between Prima Facie case and the BFOR defence must be maintained; Proof of stereotyping or arbitrariness is not mandated by the charter -- Part III.
