OHRC Brown and Ottawa Carleton District Health Council resolve complaint amicably.; 1990.
Many health and other service providers were subjecting persons with sensitivities to adverse differential treatment in the 1980's. I chose to complain about the District Health Council because 1)if you can't get into planning where can you get in? and 2) they were a group of people representing the community, rather than one of many discriminating agencies. Al Warren, Executive Director at the DHC, understood the local planning issues and invited a process toward an amicable resolution of the complaint. Therese Legault, in the OHRC Ottawa office, was very helpful. The promised conference took place in just over a year. The inclusion in local health planning never happened. The commitment the DHC made before the OHRC to include the needs of persons with sensitivities was never kept or enforced.
WORKSHOP ON ENVIRONMENTAL HYPERSENSITIVITY.; 1990.
Dozens of representatives of local service providers were invited by the DHC to a conference to raise awareness about sensitivities.
