Anti-Racism/Anti-Black Racism

Response to the Ontario Human Rights Commission's (OHRC) Letter on Racism

The University welcomed the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s recent letter to all Ontario universities and colleges regarding their responsibilities in taking action to create and sustain equitable and inclusive education environments and emphasize our obligations to students under the Ontario Human Rights Code. These are critical issues requiring deep attention to every aspect of our missions, actions, and procedures. We must all continue to work to create environments and processes through which students’ experiences of discrimination and racism can be truly heard, understood, and addressed in order for our academic environments to become increasingly respectful, equitable, welcoming, and inclusive.
