Equity Services ensures that all members of the University community (teaching assistants, instructors, faculty, students and staff) study, work and live in a respectful environment. Equity Advisors promote equity and the accommodation of diversity through proactive education, outreach and services. Advisors also provide impartial and confidential information, advice and assistance, including various forms of conflict resolution, to assist in the informal or formal resolution of human rights complaints regarding harassment and discrimination.

Equity Services includes the Centre for Aboriginal Culture and Education (CACE), which is mandated to promote the recruitment, retention and presence of aboriginal students, faculty and staff on campus. It provides one-on-one support for aboriginal students, hosts cultural activities and events, and provides opportunities for aboriginal elders to be active on campus.

Equity Services also manages the University’s employment equity program and legislated obligations under the Federal Contractors’ Program.
