What kinds of remedies can be awarded for breaches of human rights?

The BC Human Rights Tribunal has broad powers to remedy instances of discrimination contrary to the Code.  It can order that an offending party cease and desist in its conduct, impose steps or programs to address the discrimination, compensate a claimant for lost wages and expenses and provide compensation for injury to dignity, feelings and self respect resulting from the discrimination.
