Diversity and inclusion vision
The Human Rights Legal Support Centre (HRLSC) is responsive to and inclusive of the diversity of Ontario in its people, its workplace and in providing service to the public.
Diversity and inclusion goals
The HRLSC is committed to:
- Maintaining a workforce reflective of Ontario’s demographic diversity;
- Reinforcing an inclusive workplace culture, free of discrimination and harassment; and
- Delivering service in an accessible, equity-competent and responsive way.
Equity in service delivery
The HRLSC strives to make its services accessible to all individuals who have experienced discrimination. For example:
- Interpretation services in 140 languages, including ASL;
- Eligibility guidelines that give priority to disadvantaged applicants;
- Special service protocol for Aboriginal clients;
- Policy to accommodate a variety of physical, mental, language and cultural needs;
- Regional staff in Windsor, Sault Ste. Marie, Thunder Bay, Guelph, Ottawa and Brampton.
