Human Rights Services

As a division of the Office of the Assistant President/Vice Provost for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Human Rights Services continues its commitment in helping Ryerson University to foster a study, living, and work milieu that is free from discrimination and harassment and where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity. Students, staff, and faculty have a right to equal treatment with respect to employment, accommodation, and receipt of education, related services, and facilities without discrimination or harassment on the basis of the following grounds: race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, age, record of offences, marital status, family status, and/or disability.

Prevention of harassment through education is a major goal of Ryerson’s policy. The office provides education and training on issues pertaining to harassment and discrimination. The policy is informed and guided by the Ontario Human Rights Code.
