Respectful Working and Learning Environment Policy and Procedures

Human Rights & Diversity Office


About:

The new Respectful Working and Learning Environment Policy and the Procedures to implement it became effective on June 1, 2013, and are reproduced below. Creating a climate of respect and maintaining an environment free of discrimination and harassment is a shared responsibility. Members of the University community have an obligation not to cause or participate in harassment or discriminatory behavior. The University will endeavour to ensure that individuals who believe that they have been subjected to harassment or discrimination are able to express concerns and register complaints without fear of retaliation or reprisal. The University will act promptly and efficiently to deal with incidents of harassment and/or discrimination, taking corrective action respecting any member of the University community who breaches this Policy.

The Human Rights and Diversity Office administers a confidential voice mailbox (204.786.9161) to receive inquiries and complaints under the Respectful Working and Learning Environment Policy. The Human Rights and Diversity Officer’s duties include receipt, investigation and resolution of concerns and the provision of advice and assistance to faculty, staff members, students and administrators.
