Equity posterQueen West – Central Toronto Community Health Centre supports the understanding that the diverse communities served by the organization contribute to the growth, enrichment and strength of Queen West and of the larger community. We are also sensitive to the fact that various oppressed groups in our communities often encounter barriers to full access and participation.

As a service provider and employer Queen West, consistent with the Ontario Human Rights Code, will not tolerate and will address any intentional or unintentional acts of oppression towards an individual or a group of people that creates barriers to access or inclusion on the basis of race/colour, ethnicity, ancestry, religion/creed, socio-economic class, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, receipt of public assistance, political affiliation, record of offences, level of literacy, citizenship/immigration status, country of origin, religion, mental health status, age, type of housing, neighbourhood of residence, language, family status, health status, ability or any other personal characteristics in all aspects of its operation and at all levels of the organization.

Queen West is committed to ensuring that our mission and operations embrace our entire communities. Queen West encourages our communities to participate fully and to have complete access to our services, employment, Board membership and volunteer opportunities. We will make every effort to see that our structure, policies and systems reflect all aspects of the total community and to promote equal access to all.

We are committed to ensuring that we create an environment which is free of discrimination and harassment. Members of the Queen West communities are entitled to fair and equitable treatment.
