Inclusive Equality explores the legal meaning of equality, examining both the substantive conditions of inequality and the dynamic institutional and structural processes that reproduce it. It provides a critical review of evolving conceptions of equality and systemic discrimination in Canada, tracing developments in both the legislative and constitutional domains. Emphasizing the need for a broad, contextual approach, Colleen Sheppard outlines an approach to identifying and remedying inequality that is attentive to individual narratives of inequality, institutional relationships, and broader structural sources of exclusion. In a brilliant argument that insists on societal changes to make equality a reality, Sheppard provides critical insights on preventing discrimination and affirming an inclusive vision of equality.
