Employment equity policy

McGill University is committed to Employment Equity and in particular to providing equal employment opportunities consistent with the provisions of the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

The University is committed to achieving and maintaining a fair and representative workforce and will initiate employment equity measures to ensure the full participation and advancement at all levels of employment of groups which have traditionally been under-represented. These employment equity measures will include the identification and removal of any discriminatory barriers to the selection, hiring, promotion and training of members of the under-represented groups. Special measures and reasonable accommodations will be implemented, as necessary, to enable members of these groups to compete with others on an equal basis.
