remedy

A remedy is an order made by a court or tribunal to give someone their legal rights or to compensate them for their rights not being respected.

For example, if a landlord is not doing repairs that are needed, the Landlord and Tenant Board could order the landlord to do the repairs, lower the tenant’s rent until the repairs are done, or let the tenant move out with short notice.

Or, the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal might order an employer to change their policy manual to deal with discrimination in the workplace.
