As the Supreme Court of Canada wrote in 1987:
“Work is one of the most fundamental aspects in a person’s life, providing the individual with a means of financial support and, as importantly, a contributory role in society. A person’s employment is an essential component of his or her sense of identity, self-worth and emotional well-being. Accordingly, the conditions in which a person works are highly significant in shaping the whole compendium of psychological, emotional and physical elements of a person’s dignity and self respect.”
(Reference Re Public Service Employee Relations Act (Alta.),  1 SCR 313, p. 368, Justice Dickson)
Work must also be an opportunity to realize one’s full potential, free from discrimination.
