Anti-Discrimination Policy

Approved by the Board of Directors on February 7, 2013.

East End Community Health Centre (“the Centre”) believes in the uniqueness and potential of every individual, and values diversity as an asset to the organization, to our society and to community life. We strive to ensure that every staff person, student, client, board member, community member and volunteer feels welcome and respected at our Centre.

The Centre is non-discriminatory in its practices and policies, and takes an active role to eliminate discrimination on the basis of race, ancestry, place of origin, skin colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, health status, job position, economic status, disability, or physical attributes and appearance.

The Centre will not tolerate discrimination of any kind, whether engaged in by employees, directors, students and volunteers. Centre programs and activities are conducted in a manner that is sensitive to diversity and an individual’s right to appropriate services.

Issues of discrimination that are not resolved will be addressed through the Centre’s conflict resolution policy.
