HRCO Engagement

Through the HRCO’s Engagement, an outline of various ongoing activities and actions are provided below:​​

HRCO Annual Report

The HRCO Annual Report is consistent with the requirement of Minister's Direction 6 to YRDSB: ​"That the Board establish a robust Human Rights Office, properly staffed and resourced, that is responsible for human rights compliance, and processes and procedures to receive and respond to/investigate complaints of harassment and discrimination reported by staff, students and parents."

The HRCO Annual Report 2017-2018​​ is to be used as the foundation for future reports in which data and key activities can be compared over time, with the goal of identifying discrimination and harassment matters that are resolved internally, as well as emergent issues and systemic concerns.

As identified in its departmental responsibility in ensuring transparency and accountability, the HRCO,​ under the direction of the Human Rights Commissioner, shall submit an Annual Report to the Board detailing activities of the HRCO during the reporting period.​

Employment Equity at YRDSB​​

We are committed to creating and sustaining an inclusive, caring and safe work environment through recruitment and promotion practices that are equitable, transparent and support the Board’s mission, vision and values.​​
