Handicapped Persons

The Act to secure handicapped persons in the exercise of their rights with a view to achieving social, school and workplace integration (R.S.Q., c. E-20.1, section 1) defines a "handicapped person" as:

“... a person with a deficiency causing a significant and persistent disability, who is liable to encounter barriers in performing everyday activities.”

In other words, a handicapped person is a person :

  • with a deficiency (the loss, malformation or insufficiency of an organ or bodily structure, present from birth or that occurs during the person’s lifetime)
  • causing a significant (of a degree of severity or gravity that makes it impossible to restore the person’s capacities through the use of prostheses such as glasses, contact lenses, or hearing aids, or ortheses such as orthopaedic inserts or shoes)
  • and persistent (not expected to disappear)
  • disability (a reduced ability to function in intellectual, psychological, physiological or anatomical terms in a way or within limits considered to be normal)
  • who is liable to encounter barriers in performing everyday activities.

For instance, the following examples illustrate situations in which persons who have significant and persistent disabilities may experience limitations in the workplace: (Please note that this list is non-exhaustive and that the examples do not constitute legal definitions)
