This paper summarizes the case of gender discrimination by the British Columbia Ministry of Forestry against Tawney Meiorin. The paper explains that Ms. Meiorin was a firefighter who was dismissed after failing to pass an aerobic test as part of a physical fitness test for continued employment. The paper discusses how the Supreme Court of Canada used the case to revise the existing bifurcated series of two part tests for discrimination for a single three part test. The second part of this paper addresses the aspects of workplace discrimination and equal participation in the workplace by women not addressed by this case.
