An ad posted on Kijiji and Craigslist asked for a nurse at a Burlington seniors’ home– but only if you meet certain criteria.
The ad for Retire at Home said the client was looking for a “Caucasian RN or RPN” to work shifts between eight and 12 hours a week.
One Hamilton lawyer said if the ad is legit, it could open the company to an investigation by the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal.
Do you think the seniors’ home ad was being overtly racist? What if the person suffered from dementia and wasn’t used to certain people?
