In Canada I’ve heard so many people say that their promotions stopped after 45 years of age and they are well educated and current? Is it legal for companies to practice ageism?
It’s illegal to practice age discrimination, just as it’s illegal to practice gender or race discrimination, but it goes on all the time and is hard to prove. In some sectors, it even starts at 35. Canadians are sometimes oblivious to it. They love the idea that the country is rated high for anti-corruption and banking to believe that many people have to sign confidentiality agreements and cannot publicly talk about age discrimination.
