Equity at U of T
At the University of Toronto, we believe that enhancing the diversity of our staff, students and faculty to reflect our local and global community is a source of strength.
Through our equity programs, services, and offices, we are working to remove barriers to employment for people who are usually underrepresented in Canada’s workforce – Aboriginal people, people with disabilities, visible minorities, sexual minorities, and women. Our programs also ensure that employees at the University are treated with justice and fairness.
