Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Camosun College values diversity as a strength and strives to be an equitable and inclusive college community of students and employees. The College is an Equal Opportunity Employer that adheres to the BC Human Rights Code which protects against discrimination based on Indigenous identity, race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical and mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or age. The College also recognizes and honors UNDRIP, the TRC Calls to Actions and the BC Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples’ Act. Going beyond legislation, Camosun recognizes the historical and persistent inequities that many people of marginalized groups have faced in society and in the workplace. We seek to dismantle these barriers through systemic and institutional changes focused on strengthening inclusive hiring practices, accessibility and organizational culture. We recognize that moving towards more equitable communities is an ongoing and evolving journey - one which the College is committed to undertaking. Since Camosun plays an important role in creating change within communities, it is our hope that our employees reflect the diversity of our students and experience an inclusive and supportive work environment.
