  • race
  • colour
  • ancestry
  • where you were born
  • religious beliefs (check with landlords about ceremonies like smudging)
  • gender
  • physical disability
  • mental disability
  • marital status
  • family status
  • source of income
  • sexual orientation
  • gender identity
  • gender expression
