The University of Toronto’s Canada Research Chair (CRC) program is administered by the University in partnership with nine affiliated hospitals in the Toronto Academic Health Sciences Network (TASHN).
This website complements the information provided on the University’s CRC website and provides information specific to UHN, including postings for available Canada Research Chair opportunities at UHN.
UHN is working with its TASHN partners to develop an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan with regard to the CRC Program (to be released December 15, 2017). Please consult the CRC website to learn more about the Federal program’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Practices that aim to increase transparency within the program and increase nationally the number of chair holders from the four designated groups as defined by the CRC program: women; Aboriginal peoples; persons with disabilities; and members of visible minorities.
- UHN’s Equity and Inclusion Commitment
UHN is a respectful, caring and inclusive workplace. We are committed to championing accessibility, diversity and equal opportunity.
We value the inherent worth of every individual irrespective of race, skin colour, ethnic background, religious observance, spiritual practice, age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, economic status and other individual differences.
We believe that our differences serve to enrich our environment, enhancing our ability to develop creative and innovative solutions as we strive to provide exemplary patient care, research and education.
We recognize that the responsibility to create this culture rests with each of us; that each individual is personally responsible for ensuring that these values are upheld, and to that end we hold ourselves and each other accountable.
UHN’s commitment to diversity and inclusion champions efforts to create an accessible, inclusive, respectful and welcoming service, work, and learning environment. These efforts include:
- affinity and advisory groups such as Accessibility Council, Asian Heritage, Black Legacy Committee, the Indigenous Council at UHN and the LGBTQ2S+ Committee;
- policies such as the Gender Identity policy;
- cultural competency training in LGBTQ2S;
- a multi-year plan commitment to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act; and
- a dedicated diversity advisory team within Human Resources to assist all within the UHN community.
