What is the test for a bona fide occupational qualification?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Large v. Stratford (City), 1992 CanLII 8561 (ON SCDC):

In my view, this aspect of the test should not be applied with such rigour so as to nullify the concept of the bona fide occupational qualification: cf. Bhinder v. Canadian National Railway (1985), 1985 CanLII 19 (SCC), 23 D.L.R. (4th) 481, [1985] 2 S.C.R. 561, 9 C.C.E.L. 135, judgment of Wilson J.
