In their final report, the members of the French Stasi Commission keep referring and favorably so, to the standard of “ reasonable accommodation” pertaining to the cultural and religious diversity developed in Canada. This borrowed phrase however, is the outcome of a distortion of meaning. While in the report, the reasonable accommodation requires minorities to adapt their practices and values to the secular character of institutions and public space, reasonable accommodation in Canada, is a legal norm, derived from the right to equality contained in the Quebec and Canadian Charts of rights and liberties, which prescribe that a rule or regulation can be altered or qualified if its implementation is directly or indirectly discriminatory against some categories of people. The obligation of reasonable accommodation is a jurisprudential creation – deriving from the interpretative work of judges – and not from a public integration policy of immigrants and management of diversity.
