People cannot discriminate against you because of your ancestry. For example, a person’s parents might be Aboriginal, Iraqi, Korean or Mexican.
My parents came to Canada from Mexico. People at work know my ancestry.
One of my co-workers tells jokes about Mexicans. I don’t think the jokes are funny. She doesn’t tell jokes about other people.
I think my co-worker is harassing me because of my ancestry. That is discrimination.
People cannot discriminate against you because of your place of origin. Place of origin means where a person was born.
I’m looking for a better job. I went to a job interview. The interviewer said, “You have an accent. Where were you born?” I said, “China.”
The interview was very short. I didn’t get the job.
I have lots of work experience in Canada. I think the interviewer discriminated against me because of my place of origin.
